During Council 2’s Legislative Weekend in Olympia attendees toured the Washington State Capitol building, spoke with legislators, attended a workshop and committee meetings, heard a talk from a state representative, and received an update on the legislative session. 

Here are pictures from the event.

A tour guide points out a feature in the House of Representatives at the Washington State Capitol as Council 2 members look on. Two groups of Council 2 members were guided through the building where they not only viewed the building’s impressive architecture, but also learned how the legislative system works and gained an insight into the state’s history.


During the visit to the State Captitol, some members met with their legislative representatives.

The court is based in Pettigrew’s district.
