U.S. Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal spoke to a standing-room-only crowd of about 150 people on Thursday, March 29, at the Edmonds Senior Center.

Elected in 2016, Jayapal represents Washington’s 7th District, which encompasses most of Seattle and the surrounding areas, including Edmonds, Vashon Island, Lake Forest Park, Shoreline and parts of Burien and Normandy Park.

Mayor Dave Earling spoke beforehand, as did Senior Center Executive Director Farrell Fleming.

Jayapal serves on the House Judiciary Committee; the Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security; and the Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet.

She is also the Vice Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee and the First Vice Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.
