Share your input for next week’s NC 119: Virtual Town Hall
Join Blue Ridge Public Radio and Smoky Mountain News next Thursday, September 24, at 7 PM for a virtual town hall with Republican Mike Clampitt and Democrat Representative Joe Sam Queen, candidates running for the North Carolina House of Representatives District 119. This will be the fifth time that these two candidates have gone head-to-head to represent the people of Haywood, Jackson and Swain counties.
A big part of this virtual town hall is YOU. If you live in Swain, Jackson or Haywood Counties, send us your questions and concerns for both candidates. Do you want to talk about COVID-19, employment in the mountains, racial justice or other topics? Submit your questions by recording a voice memo and emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org, or post a comment to the event’s Facebook page.
The virtual event will be hosted at Western Carolina University; however, due to venue capacity limits currently in place the event will not be open to the public. This town hall will be livestreamed on Blue Ridge Public Radio’s Facebook page.
