State Rep. Warren to host town hall meeting Thursday
State Rep. Harry Warren will hoat a town hall meeting Thursday in Salisbury.
The meeting will start at 6 p.m. in the Rowan County Administration Building, 130 W. Innes St. It is open to the public.
The most recent town hall meeting organized by Warren drew more than 100 people and included three of Rowan County’s four legislators. This time, Warren says he’ll be the only legislator to attend.
In anticipation of a large turnout, Warren said, seats will be set aside for residents of District 77, which he represents. That includes western and southwestern Rowan County, Granite Quarry, Faith, Spencer and parts of Salisbury.
At the previous town hall, each legislator gave an update on the work of the General Assembly before taking questions. Warren says he will spend about 10 minutes talking about ongoing matters in the legislature before taking questions.
Warren says he will handle questions slightly differently than prior town halls. People who attend will be asked to put their names and contact information on a piece of paper and place it into a hat. Rowan County Republican Party Chairman Don Vick and Democratic Party Chairman Geoffrey Hoy will take turns pulling names out of the hat, and those people will then have a minute to ask a question.
The meeting is scheduled to end at 7 p.m.
