The Avalon Foundation and the Talbot Spy have announced that the two organizations will present a community Town Hall meeting of candidates running for the Talbot County Council on October 9th (Sunday) at 6 pm at the Avalon main theatre to discuss the future of Talbot County.
Spy Columnist Craig Fuller has agreed to host the evening’s program. Mr. Fuller has been a resident of Talbot County for the last seven years. Prior to his arrival, he served four years in the White House as assistant to President Reagan for Cabinet Affairs, followed by four years as chief of staff to Vice President George H.W. Bush. He later was the CEO of public affairs firms and associations in Washington, D.C., before his retirement.
Over the next two weeks, the Avalon and the Spy will be soliciting their different constituencies’ questions for the candidates at the gathering. Those subjects will be forwarded to the participants a week before the event. We welcome your participation in the survey here.
The program is anticipated to last 120 minutes. It will be live streamed on Mid-Shore Community Television and the Spy’s Facebook channel. Attendance at the Avalon will be on a first-come basis, and there will be no charge for admission. Donations, however, are welcomed to support the cost of this event and future community programming in the future.
Admission is free but donations are welcome here to help cover incidental costs for this program and other public affairs collaborations in the future.
