Tonight, Congresswoman Deborah Ross (NC-02) is hosting a telephone town hall, entitled the State of Wake, to offer her constituents the opportunity to share their thoughts and ask questions about issues important to the residents of Wake County. Congresswoman Ross will be joined by North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kody Kinsley, Wake County Board of Commissioners Chair Shinica Thomas, and Will Parry-Hill, Manager of Government and Industry Relations at the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency. These experts from the community will help answer inquiries on everything from inflation and the economy, to the affordable housing shortage, to health care and mental health resources and more. The town hall will last approximately one hour and offer residents of North Carolina’s Second Congressional District a simple and convenient way to connect directly with their congressional representative.

“A critical part of my job as your representative in Congress is to listen to the people of Wake County and learn more about your priorities so I can better advocate for you and your family in Washington,” said Congresswoman Ross. “From the rising costs of housing and health care to the mental health crisis, this telephone town hall will enable constituents to get information and share their perspectives and concerns on some of the most pressing issues our community is facing. I want to encourage everyone in the Second Congressional District to call-in tonight, and I look forward to a great conversation.”

The State of Wake Telephone Town Hall will be held tonight, Monday, February 27th at 8:00 p.m. Some residents of North Carolina’s Second Congressional District, which includes most of Wake County, may receive an automated telephone call from Congresswoman Ross’ office that will give them the option to be automatically connected into the telephone town hall.

In addition, constituents may join the town hall by calling toll-free (833)-479-1988. Anyone on the call may listen to the live event and specific instructions will be provided for callers who wish to ask a question.
