King County Councilmember Pete von Reichbauer sponsored the monthly Auburn Area Chamber of Commerce luncheon this week, welcoming two guest speakers – Sen. Joe Fain (R-Auburn) and Rep. Pat Sullivan (D-Covington).
The guests offered updates on the recently-concluded legislative session and answered questions.
"There are 49 legislative districts in Washington state," von Reichbauer said, "and 48 of them would welcome having Rep. Sullivan and Sen. Fain as their legislators. They both put the public interest above political interest."
Fain and Sullivan both represent the 47th Legislative District. Fain serves as the Majority Floor Leader in the state Senate, while Rep. Sullivan serves as the Majority Leader in the state House of Representatives.
