The Rowlett TEA Party, a non-partisan TEA Party group, will be holding a Candidates Forum on Saturday, Sept. 25th, 2010, from 5:00PM – 9:00PM at First United Methodist Church of Rowlett located at 4405 Main Street, Rowlett, TX 75088
This is a *meet and greet* event which will allow the candidates an opportunity to meet our local residents and speak to them concerning the race they are running and why we should vote for them. It is NOT a debate.
The Forum will be moderated by Rowlett Mayor Dr. John Harper.
I have extended invitations to ALL news media in the North Texas area. We also hope that you, the candidates, will use your network to help publicize this event!
We will have the Church Sanctuary for the event but we will also have the foyer available so candidates can have a table with their campaign literature made available to the public.We are asking that candidates make a $25.00 donation to help the Rowlett TEA Party offset the cost of the Church facility and the use of their sound system people.
We have sent an invitation to The Dallas County Democratic Party and to The Dallas County Republican Party. We hope that all of their candidates get the message regarding this very important political event.
When we receive a confirmation that a candidate has accepted the invitation, they are added to the list along with their opponent, if that opponent has responded. Otherwise, only the candidate that responded will be shown.
