“To learn more and voice your opinions, come to The District 11 Medicare for All Town Hall in Waynesville, 285 N Main St., on April 23, 3-5 p.m.”
“Local groups are inviting our congressmen to open meetings: Our Revolution and Indivisible are sponsoring a “Medicare for All” Town Hall for Meadows’ 11th District constituents on the courthouse lawn in Waynesville Sunday, April 23, at 3 p.m.”
Speaking to about 100 people at the Leicester Community Center on Saturday, June 30, in a polo shirt and khaki pants instead of a suit and tie, Buncombe County Rep. Tim Moffitt touted his accomplishments as a freshman legislator during a town hall forum. (photo by Caitlin Byrd)
