Four-Year Baccalaureate University To Host U.S. Representative
For North Carolina’s 4th Congressional District For Discussion Of Legislative Issues
RALEIGH, N.C. – William Peace University (http://www.peace.edu), a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced that the university will host a town hall meeting with U.S. Rep. David Price (D) on Monday, April 8 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Kenan Hall. The event is free and open to the public and members of the media. It will include discussions between the congressman and his constituents about general legislative issues and updates, current events and other topics of concern. Members of Price’s staff will also be on hand at the Town Hall Meeting to help constituents dealing with federal agencies. Seats are given on a first come first serve basis, as space is limited.
From 1987 to 1995 and from 1997 onward, Price has served in the U.S. Congress as the representative for the 4th District, which includes parts of Wake, Alamance, Orange, Durham, Harnett, Chatham and Cumberland counties. He is a strong supporter of education, accessible health care, affordable housing, clean air and water, and improved transportation alternatives. Price is a member of the House Appropriations Committee and serves as the ranking Democrat on the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, which oversees funding for the Department of Homeland Security. Additionally, he serves on the Appropriations Subcommittees and is responsible for housing, transportation, military construction and veterans affairs appropriations. As the ranking member of the House Democracy Partnership and an outspoken advocate for Middle East peace, Price is a recognized leader on foreign policy issues. He received his undergraduate degree at UNC-Chapel Hill and earned a Bachelor of Divinity as well as a Ph.D. in political science at Yale University.
“It is an honor to have Rep. David Price visit the William Peace University campus to provide us with his insight and perspective on the latest developments occurring in the U.S. Congress,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “This is a great opportunity for everyone from our students to the general public to interact with and learn from this veteran congressman the status of pressing issues, including the progress of proposed legislation. We encourage anyone interested in our democratic process to arrive early, as this is sure to be a heavily attended event of interest.”
