Appalachian State Student Government Association is organizing a municipal election forum featuring candidates for Boone Town Council and Mayor. The forum will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 17 at 6:30 p.m. in the Linville Falls room on the 2nd floor of the Plemmons Student Union.
This is a part of an effort in Student Government to facilitate active student engagement in the local community as well as town meetings. Have a question you’d like to ask the candidates? Submit one anonymously here, and it will be considered for the forum: https://goo.gl/forms/I87rXz7EaczoPiWs2
