Past Events

You are invited to attend my annual “Ninth District Day” conference in Washington, D.C. on May 8th, 2014. PLEASE RSVP HERE

Ninth District Day is a forum that brings together Washington state constituents, as well as policy, media, and other leaders in Washington D.C.  In recent years, speakers have included Washington Senators Patty Murray, Maria Cantwell, and John McCain, CNN Terrorism Expert Peter Bergen, Meet the Press moderator David Gregory, ABC News Anchor George Stephanopoulos, then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, then-House Minority Leader Roy Blunt, NBC News Political Director Chuck Todd, and Special Operations Command (SOCOM) Commander Admiral T. Eric Olson.

This year I would like to again present a wide array of bipartisan speakers from the government, business, and media communities. We are reaching out to speakers now and will update this page when we confirm.

The objective will be to talk to constituents on issues ranging from technology and foreign policy to the domestic priorities and this year’s congressional agenda. This variety of topics and speakers will provide my constituents with an opportunity to gain a better understanding of how our government works. Please join me for this exciting and informative event!
