Video of the Sylva Candidate Issues Forum

Here is the video I shot last night in Sylva, NC of a candidate forum that was sponsored by a coalition of local groups and a newspaper.

Candidates (by race) that participated were:

NC Senate 50th District

Senator Jim Davis
John Snow

NC House District 119
Representative Joe Sam Queen
Mike Clampitt

Jackson County Commissioner District IV
Commissioner Mark Jones
Marty Jones

Candidates that did not participate:

US House of Representative District NC11
Mark Meadows
Hayden Rogers

Congressman Heath Shuler is the retiring incumbent in this race.

I would like to thank Ron Haven, Kathy Hildreth and the Macon County Republican Party for providing me transportation to this event after my truck experienced mechanical problems.

Here are some of the photos that I took:
