Town hall Meeting

The public is invited to a town hall style candidate forum hosted by the Dare County Democratic Party. The event will be held at the Town of Nags Head Commissioner’s meeting room at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 24. and will feature Democratic candidates for the North Carolina House Dist. 6 seat and the District 2 seat for the Dare County Board of Commissioners. Democrats and unaffiliated voters requesting a Democratic ballot in the March 15th primary will be interested in attending.

The event will be recorded and portions will be available for viewing on YouTube and the Dare Democrats Facebook page and website.

Candidates attending include Judy Justice and Warren Judge for the NC House and John Towler and Bobby Culpepper for the Board of Commissioners.

The candidates will take questions from the audience and the audience will have a chance to interact with the candidates.

Additionally, the League of Women Voters of Dare County has planned several candidate events in advance of the March 15 North Carolina primary. There will be two forums for candidates seeking election to Dare County Board Education—races that will be decided on March 15. The first is at 7 p.m. on February 23 at Nags Head Elementary School and the second is slated for 7 p.m. on February 29 at the Fessenden Center in Buxton.

In addition, the League will host a reception for all primary candidates on Feb. 21 from 2-4 p.m. at the Nags Head Elementary School.
