Description:
Indivisible Asheville/WNC will host a town hall meeting for congressional candidates for Districts 10 and 11 at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 27 at the Lord Auditorium in Pack Library at 67 Haywood St. in downtown Asheville. All are welcome to attend this free event. All candidates for congress in Districts 10 and 11 have been invited to participate: David Wilson Brown (D-10) and Patrick McHenry (R-10), and Phillip Price (D-11) and Mark Meadows (R-11). “We had hoped this event would be a debate, so the voters from each District would have a chance to hear both the Republican and Democratic candidates, and fully understand the differences in political philosophies,” said Cindy McGrayne of Indivisible Asheville/WNC. “But neither of the incumbent candidates, Mark Meadows or Patrick McHenry, accepted our invitation.” Rep. Patrick McHenry declined to participate. Staff for Rep. Mark Meadows stated that he would only participate in one debate during the campaign season, which was to be held at Western Carolina University sometime in October, although challenger Phillip Price stated that he has not received an invitation or any notice of such a debate. "We are disappointed that Meadows and McHenry have refused this opportunity to engage with their constituents," McGrayne said. “In their absence, we will do our best to give a fair summary of each congressman's record on the topics to be addressed." Indivisible Asheville/WNC will host an additional town hall featuring area candidates for NC Senate and House at 6 p.m. on October 23, 2018 at the Wesley Grant Sr. Southside Center in Asheville. Indivisible Asheville/WNC is a non-partisan action group dedicated to defending Democracy with informed community action in WNC.
