Chamber representatives Kelly Snyder of UW Bothell, Aran Buchan of HUB International NW, Matt Isenhower of Chick-fil-A Bothell Canyon Park, Brittany Caldwell Chamber Executive Director, and Bea Huang spent 2019 Chamber Day in Olympia this week meeting with a wide variety of people and discussing important issues affecting businesses in our area and Washington state.

They met with the 1st (Bothell) and the 46th (Kenmore) District Representatives, Senator Hobb’s team, as well as the Association of Washington Business.

Some of the issues discussed were transportation, Senate Bill 5326 which would impose a new tax burden on small hair salon owners and independent stylists, funds for a new academic building on the Cascadia/UW Bothell campus, and condo liability reform.
