This is largest town hall of the campaign so far;
Jackson has held 24 town halls in the last 26 days
Charlotte – Jeff Jackson (D), candidate for US Senate, held town halls in six counties over the weekend during stops on his 100 in 100 effort. The campaign has held 24 town halls in the last 26 days.
On Saturday, over 300 attendees joined Sen. Jackson at Winston Square Park in Winston-Salem for his Forsyth County town hall, the largest of the campaign so far. Sen. Jackson took questions about affordable housing, voting rights, climate change, health care, gun violence, cannabis reform and gerrymandering.
“The point of these town halls isn’t just to come out for a photo op and a handshake. It’s to learn about issues impacting folks and build an agenda that reflects their needs,” said Sen. Jackson. “And people are responding. They’re fired up because it’s a fundamentally different way of campaigning from what folks in North Carolina are used to. It’s a shock of good faith to the system.”
Sen. Jackson also held town halls in Hoke, Stokes, Rockingham, Forsyth, Yadkin, and Cabarrus counties, meeting voters to learn about local issues and talk about the campaign. Over 140 people attended the Cabarrus County town hall at noon on Monday.
The 100 in 100 effort continues this weekend with stops in Stanly, Onslow, Pender, Brunswick, New Hanover, and Cleveland counties.
