ALSO NEXT WEEK: Talk with your U.S. Rep., Pramila Jayapal, in West Seattle

If you have a question or concern about what’s happening in Washington, D.C., one week from tonight, you can talk with our area’s U.S. House representative here in West Seattle – Rep. Pramila Jayapal, who’s planning a town-hall meeting at 6 pm Tuesday, March 27th, at The Hall at Fauntleroy (9131 California SW). She lives in West Seattle but represents (corrected) much of the city as well as the rest of the 7th District [added: here’s the map].

    I’m going specifically ask her how she can sleep at night after a voting record that clearly leans so far Left that she has almost started her very own Socialist party.

      Her name auto-corrects to paramilitary on my phone. That’s the real scandal and conspiracy.

      Yeah, her votes in favor of sanctioning Iran, Russia, and North Korea; funding disaster relief; and reauthorizing grants for school security are SCANDALOUS.

      Please do. I’ll be there, and I’ll enjoy seeing you get booed out of the hall. Pramila is a rockstar, and I am so thankful to have her as my representative. If you think she leans too far left, you’re welcome to move to Texas, or Arizona, or even Florida.

        Civil discourse left this country about the time everyone started using Facebook.  Those on the far right and far left cannot handle an opinion that does not match up with their own.

        Very sad but very true.

        Glad my kids are moving to Canada as soon as they graduate high school.

        Right or left, everyone has the right to have an opinion.

        Saying someone should move to Texas or Arizona if they have a conservative view point is kind of like saying “move to wherever there are more people like you.” Doesn’t make us very tolerant and is hypocritical if you want to identify as liberal.

      Are you sure you’re not confusing her with someone else?

    • Question Question Authority March 21, 2018 (9:36 pm)

      You’re thinking of the city councilwoman those name you probably also can’t pronounce. Congresswoman Jayapal is just a normal Democratic line voter, hardly radical besides her support for women (which the GOP legislature really never promotes to bills).

  • GatewoodGuy March 21, 2018 (6:49 am)

    OK, hate to be that commenter, but Congresswoman Jayapal doesn’t represent the entire city. Congressman Adam Smith represents significant portions of the city of Seattle, mostly south of downtown.

      Will change to “much of,” thanks.

  • MJ March 21, 2018 (1:49 pm)

    Adam is clearly a better representative.  I lived in his district for a number of years and may not have agreed with him on some issues but I felt him to be pragmatic center left.  

    I cannot stand the hard left or right, neither is good.

Sorry, comment time is over.
