SYMRNA, TN)—Voters in the sixth congressional district of Tennessee now served by retiring Congressman Bart Gordon will have a chance to question candidates hoping to win that seat at a forum set for Saturday, May 1, 2010 beginning at 4:30 p.m. at the Lancaster Christian Academy in Smyrna.
“This is a chance for anyone in the district to probe those asking for the opportunity to represent them in Washington,” said Rutherford County 9.12 Project Tennessee member and forum organizer Mishelle Perkins. “This forum is for the people, not the politicians. This is not a fund raiser and there will be no political speeches. The candidates will be there for one purpose and one purpose only—to answer questions directly from those they propose to represent.”
According to Perkins, all conservative candidates who have qualified to be on the ballot in the August 5th primary have been invited to be present at the event. “Project 9.12 is an organization of ordinary citizens with the extraordinary goal of helping identify and elect a true citizen legislature versus the current career politicians. We think it is time to return the power to where it belongs—with the people.”
The school is located at 150 Soccer Way in Smyrna and seating begins at 3:30 pm. For directions, log onto www.lancasterchristianacademy.com. Candidates will be available to meet and greet visitors prior to the event. Concessions and ample parking are available.
