Special to the Opelika Observer

Alabama Together will host a forum on issues important to constituents in Alabama House District 3 Aug. 16 from 6-8 p.m.
The public is invited to attend the discussion at the Southside Center for the Arts in Opelika, located at 1103 Glenn St.
The event is designed to give voters a chance to ask questions and learn more about the candidates on the ballot for U.S. Congress in House District 3, Mallory Hagan (D) and Mike Rogers (R). Hagan has confirmed attendance, but Rogers declined invitations to participate.
“Hearing from the people of Alabama has been a priority for me throughout this campaign. After all, if you’re asking people for their trust and their vote, you should take time to listen to them,” Hagan said.
“Our entire campaign has been accessible and available to the people from day one. Forums are a critical part of that process and give people an opportunity to ask a question or voice a concern. Not only will I be at this town hall, but I pledge to hold them
regularly when elected so the people of the Third District will finally have a representative brave enough to face their constituents.”
Alabama Together also invited all local Democrat and Republican candidates for the Alabama Senate and House of Representatives to attend. The public will have an opportunity to personally interact with those candidates in attendance at the end of the forum.
Debra Armstrong-Wright of Alabama Together said, “We are sponsoring this forum so that voters can ask questions of candidates for office, particularly those seeking to represent us in Washington. We hope all voters in the area will attend.”
Alabama Together is a concerned group of Alabama residents and voters who support democracy, transparent governance, and an inclusive society that honors all people.
