Recently candidate Michael Shaffer come by our discussion group to introduce himself. Currently members of the group are asking him questions concerning his views. Why not join the conversation and ask him something that concerns you, as a citizen of North Carolina? The 9th district covers portions of Gaston, Union, and Mecklenburg counties, but it is well known that views of representatives are important to all residents of the state. This district is currently being served by Republican Sue Myrick.
