On Friday, Jan. 6, Washington Filmworks attended the 2012 Legislative Preview program, held at the Westin and hosted by Seattle’s CityClub. Various community sectors were there to hear from leadership in the State House and Senate including, Senate Majority Leader Lisa Brown (Spokane), Senate Republican Leader Mike Hewitt (Walla Walla), House Majority Leader Pat Sullivan (Covington) and House Ways & Means Ranking Republican Gary Alexander (Olympia). Washington Filmworks was represented by Executive Director Amy Lillard, Board Chair Becky Bogard and Accounting Manager Julie Daman.
Topics included the creation of new jobs, the Washington Supreme Court’s recent education funding decision, and balancing the state’s budget. Legislators will face a challenging jumble of social issues and tough decisions about Washington’s resource shortfalls. The event was a preview of the difficult conversations that will be happening in Olympia starting today.
