Legislative Chair: JC Mitchell, email@example.com
Our Legislative Chair will help keep your local PTSA informed on the latest issues and bills in Olympia that effect our students and educators. If you do not have a Legislative Chair for your PTSA, you should consider asking a volunteer to serve in this position. Our Legislative Chair can help your local PTSA understand the importance of being involved in advocating for our students.
