News from Representative Heck

   




Out and about in the 10th

On Saturday, October 20, the Eastside Community Center opened its doors. Shalisa Hayes and Team Billy Ray brought the community together to make this project happen, and I can't wait to see all the joy, friendship, and celebrations that will come out of this new space.


I joined community leaders from Pierce County at Pacific Lutheran University to discuss the most pressing issues our schools and communities are facing, notably homelessness and how that impacts education.


I joined leaders of the Nisqually Indian Tribe and Thurston County at the Nisqually reservation to celebrate their first ballot box, which will provide another way for tribal members to cast their ballot in future elections.

 

I checked in with the students at GATES High School in Tacoma to see how school is going and participated in a Q&A about how to be active in our representative democracy.

I also spoke to the Lakewood Historical Society about how we can preserve our community's history and get future generations engaged in telling the stories of our past.

I return to D.C. in November for more legislative business, and I'll make sure to take what I heard from the people of the 10th Congressional District back with me as we decide on important matters before this session of Congress ends.

As always, thank you for your engagement and input, I couldn't do it without you.

Sincerely,

Denny Heck
Your Member of Congress
