How can a Congress with such wide political differences move forward together for the good of the nation?
Thats the question we will tackle at the inaugural Solving It Together forum, presented by The Charlotte Observer and PNC Bank. Our evenings host will be UNC Charlotte.
We invite the public to join in this special discussion from 7 to 9 p.m. Nov. 30 at UNC Charlotte Center City. A brief reception will follow.
Our goal for the evening is an open, constructive conversation about how elected leaders with political differences can find common ground.
We will hear from former members of Congress and others who have built bridges and coalitions in Washington, including Jim Martin, a former North Carolina governor and congressman, former U.S. Rep. John Spratt and Kimrey Rhinehart, a UNC vice president and former top aide to U.S. Sen. Richard Burr.
Then, well turn the stage over to current members of Congress, including Mel Watt, Patrick McHenry and Mick Mulvaney.
Our moderator for the evening is WCNC-TVs Sonja Gantt. Register now. Seating is limited.
