Sno-Isle Libraries and The Daily Herald present Stories in Democracy, a video series of personal conversations exploring our democracy with members of Congress.
In this conversation, Congressman Rick Larsen, who’s been passionate about the workings of government since he was a child growing up in Arlington, WA, discusses the importance of his role as an elected Representative and his desire to make government work for people today.
"People need to have the ability to interact with people in government in order to try to help solve their problems, and in the end, for all the divisiveness that's going on right now in the US, it really is about continuing to try to show people... that it's their government."
From an understanding that everyone needs to disengage with the political process at times, Larsen offers encouragement to everyone to find something they love and use that to engage in their community.
