WAKE FOREST — The Wake Forest Area Chamber of Commerce is hosting a Candidates Meet and Greet Wednesday, Oct. 19, 6-8 p.m. at the Renaissance Centre, 405 S. Brooks St.
Candidates running in local, state, and national elections have been invited to the event, held with support from Hartsfield and Nash Insurance Agency.
No speeches are on the agenda. Instead, the event will provide voters with the opportunity to speak one-on-one with candidates to learn more about their positions on issues of interest.
“The chamber is pleased to organize this event,” said Ann Welton, chamber president. “All elections are important, but this year’s races are especially significant. Our intention is to give all Wake Forest area residents the opportunity to meet and talk with candidates before they cast their votes.”
As of Oct. 7, candidates who had committed to the event are: John Alexander, Marilyn Avila, Chad Barefoot, Mike Causey, Terence Everitt, George Holding, Joe John, Chris Malone, Charles Meeker, John McNeil, and Deborah Ross. As commitments are confirmed, names are being added to the Chamber’s website. The updated list can be found at wakeforestchamber.org/event-info-candidates-meet-greet-2016.
Registration is not required. The doors will open at 6 p.m. and residents are invited to arrive any time before 8 p.m.
