Roe plans town hall at Unaka ElementaryPublished 8:28am Tuesday, August 26, 2014
Carter County residents will have a chance to make their voices heard next week as a congressman holds a public forum.
U.S. Rep. Phil Roe will hold a town hall meeting Tuesday, Sept. 2, at 6:30 p.m. at Unaka Elementary School.
“I try to hold as many town hall meetings as possible for constituents in the First District,” Roe said in his announcement for the meeting. “I want to keep East Tennesseans informed and would also like to hear what’s on your mind.”
Roe said he enjoys hearing from his constituents. “My door is always open, but I realize it can be difficult to make it to one of my offices,” he said, adding that is one reason behind his holding town hall meetings.
The event is free and open to the public.
Roe is up for re-election this year. Earlier this month he secured the Republican nomination for Tennessee’s First District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. In November he will face off against Libertarian Party candidate Michael Salyer and Independent candidate Robert Franklin. There is no Democratic nominee for the seat.
