RENO — At 6 p.m. on Aug. 31 candidates vying for the state’s 2nd Congressional District seat, previously held by Republican Dean Heller, will meet with students, faculty and community members about the state’s current issues, with moderator Sam Shad of the political television news program Nevada Newsmakers.
This free, student-hosted event will be held in the Joe Crowley Student Union ballrooms from 6 to 9 p.m. and is open to students, faculty and the community. Beginning at 6:15 p.m., each candidate will be given an opportunity to deliver a five-minute opening statement before questions begin at 6:30 p.m. As the moderator, Shad will decide which questions will be delivered to the candidates.
Kate Marshall, Tim Fasano and Helmuth Lehmann have confirmed their attendance for the town hall. Currently, Mark Amodei has not accepted ASUN’s invitation.
Early voting for the special election begins on Aug. 27. From Sept. 6 through 9, the University’s Joe Crowley Student Union will be an early-voting location.
