Who: All students, regardless of political affiliation, are encouraged to attend.
When: Tuesday, Jan. 16 at 7 p.m.
Where: Lloyd Hall Room 226
Why: This event is an opportunity for students of all backgrounds to survey a local politician.
Cara Clay, vice president of the UA College Democrats, said, “Sue Bell Cobb can encourage student democrats by continuing to emphasize one of her campaign platforms, which is honesty. Honesty is definitely a trait that people desire to see in a politician.”
Clay also said people who don’t identify as democrats should still come to the meeting because it is important for people to form their own opinions on whether a candidate is qualified based on more than just their party.
