Rep. Dave Upthegrove will be holding “drop-in hours” at various area locations once a month through August, starting Tuesday, June 22nd in Burien.

Upthegrove, who serves the 33rd District and lives in Des Moines, is doing this so he can “meet informally with Highline-area constituents.”

“I’m always happy to meet one-on-one with people, and they can call my legislative office to make an appointment,” Upthegrove said in a statement. “But in addition, I wanted to give constituents from the Highline area a chance to simply drop by and talk to me about legislative issues and concerns.”

He’ll be available to meet on each fourth Tuesday during June (the 22nd), July (the 27th) and August (24th), and will hang out at the recently-opened Infusion Tea & Coffee Shop at 15607 First Ave South in Burien, from 1:30pm – 2:30pm.

Additional “drop-in” hours will be held June 14, July 12, and August 9 (second Tuesday of each month) at the following South King County locations and times:

  • 11:00 a.m. to Noon
    Kent City Hall lobby
    220 4th Avenue South, Kent
  • 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
    Highline Community College Student Union Building – second floor information table
    2400 S. 240th Street, Des Moines (at Pacific Highway South)

Appointments are not necessary, which will allow for area residents to just “drop-in” and speak with him.

Upthegrove notes that these “drop-in hours” are in addition to his standing offer to meet with constituents at a time and location of their convenience.

Here’s a press release with more details:

    You’ve got to respect the man for his willingness to meet with the public when so many other democrats avoid it because they fear having to deal with disgruntled and/or unemployed voters. Regardless, I still wouldn’t vote for him because of the economic mess that we’re in. It’s time for new blood! It can be democrat/Republican/Libertarian – it’s time for somebody to get in there who will say, “The general public doesn’t spend what they don’t have, so I’ll fight to have government do the same. We’ll tighten our belts along with you and not ask for anymore of your hard-earned money.”

    ……dream on, right?

    “the general public dosent spend what they don’t have”?

    I took out a Mortgage, because I didn’t have cash for my house. I took out a car loan to by my car. Coverofnight, do you have any credit cards?

    The general public has become too willing to spend what they don’t have!
