Days and Times Washington County Legislators Plan to Attend 2017 County Fair
A few days ago we called and emailed the Washington County state legislators and their legislative assistants asking them if they'd like us to post the days and times they plan to be at the 2017 Washington County Fair August 2nd through the 6th. Not all of them have responded yet.
The legislators will likely be by their party's booth. Senator Housley has her own booth that is on Commerce ave between the exhibit A and B buildings. See Map. If we had one bi-partisan issue to bring up with legislators it'd be to advocate for Sex offender law changes. It's a serious problem in our County and across the State.
