Five of the area's state lawmakers plan to host town hall meetings during the Presidents Day holiday weekend, giving residents a chance to quiz them about possible budget cuts, new taxes and education reform as well as the new law legalizing gay marriage.
•State Sen. Rosemary McAuliffe, D-Bothell, and state Reps. Derek Stanford, D-Bothell, and Luis Moscoso, D-Mountlake Terrace, who comprise the 1st Legislative District delegation, plan two events Saturday.
