St. Mark’s United Methodist Church will host a public forum, “2016 Election Issues for Contemporary People of Faith,” on Tuesday, October 11th at 6:45 p.m. The forum promises non-partisan, balanced and civil discussion by popular panelists from the weekly statewide TV program, NC SPIN and will be moderated by Tom Campbell, producer and moderator for the show. Following a discussion of the issues, candidates and this year’s election law changes the panel will take questions from the audience. Following the event a light reception will be held in Anderson Hall.
“This is one of the most significant elections in which many of us have ever voted,” said Campbell, host of the program and longtime Sunday School teacher. “In the midst of the rancor, and divisive, partisan dialogue it is only natural that people of faith want more information in order to make more informed decisions. This forum will not promote any candidate, political agenda or particular faith practice, promising to be an honest, balanced and civil discussion. We encourage anyone desiring to learn more to attend,” Campbell concluded.
Panelists for the forum include:
Dan Blue, NC State Senator
Brad Crone, political consultant
Chris Fitzsimon, NC Policy Watch
Becki Gray, John Locke Foundation
Joe Mavretic, former NC House Speaker
Connie Wilson, former NC Legislator
This forum is free and open to all. St. Mark’s UMC is located at 4801 Six Forks Road, Raleigh, NC 27609. For more information contact Jen Bauldree at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the website at www.stmarksraleigh.org
