Rep. Sharon Wylie to hold live Web chat at next week

Wylie took her seat in the Washington House in April after Clark County commissioners appointed her to succeed Jim Jacks as a representative from the 49th District. She must win the seat she was appointed to in the Nov. 8 election in order to serve beyond Nov. 29. Craig Riley, Wylie’s Republican opponent in the race, did not respond to The Columbian’s invitation to participate in the live chat.
