Congresswoman Suzan DelBene is continuing her tradition of a summer visit to the Point.
On Saturday, August 12, the congresswoman and staff from her offices in Bothell and Mount Vernon will tour Point Roberts and meet with constituents. The Point Roberts Taxpayers’ Association (PRTA) will once again host an open public forum in the community center from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.
PRTA president Mark Robbins noted that this will be the fourth annual meeting with the congresswoman hosted by the taxpayers: “We are honored to have the opportunity to work with the congresswoman and her staff to facilitate what has become an annual event during the summertime congressional recess. We look forward to welcoming Rep. DelBene back to Point Roberts and giving her constituents the opportunity to hear from her and to ask questions. Everyone is welcome to attend.”
“As a member of Congress, one of the most important aspects of my job is to stay informed of the thoughts and opinions of my constituents, which is why I’m always pleased to join the Point Roberts Taxpayers’ Association for a constituent forum,” DelBene said. “I appreciate the time people take to come to this annual event and look forward to hearing what’s on your mind.”
Re-elected to a third term last November, Congresswoman DelBene represents the First Congressional District in Washington state, which includes Point Roberts. She serves on the House Ways and Means Committee and the House Budget Committee. In her role on these committees, the congresswoman is at the forefront of debate on tax reform, healthcare and retirement security.
