Probst to host telephone town hall



Some Vancouver residents will receive a call Thursday night allowing them to participate in a telephone town hall meeting with state Rep. Tim Probst, D-Vancouver.

Thousands living in the 17th Legislative District will get an automatically generated call just before 6 p.m. Thursday. They can ask Probst a question by dialing *3, and they can listen to the conference call live as other people ask questions.

The telephone town hall will focus on plans to create economic recovery, as well as other topics being tackled by the state Legislature. Probst also is planning an in-person town hall meeting in June, and the exact date and location has yet to be announced.
