TONIGHT: Area residents invited to Burney “Town Hall” meeting – With multiple June candidates scheduled to attend
BURNEY, Calif., — Residents of Shasta County’s Intermountain communities and beyond are invited to attend tonight’s open-forum “Town-Hall” style meeting to meet some of the “non-established” candidates running in the June 7 elections.
The meeting, which will be held this evening at the Burney VFW Hall, begins at 6 p.m. and will continue through 8 p.m. for all those interested in meeting some of those who will be running for their intended positions next month.
LEADING THE SCNS HEADLINES:
“I care deeply about my hometown and my roots, as well as the amazing hardworking folks who live within the Intermountain communities of our County, and I would love to see them have the opportunity not just to speak up and ask questions, but to have their voices heard,” event organizer, Lindsi Haynes, said after reaching out to SCNS to spread word of tonight’s meeting.
“Our values we share have been ignored by our elected officials, but we are now paying attention, and this is really just about giving people from the Intermountain area a chance to hear directly from several people who are running for very important positions that cover the entire Shasta County.”
“It’s also an excellent way to have small town voices heard and their questions and concerns addressed,” she explained.
“We really want everyone in the area to know that their voices matter,” Lindsi continued, enthusiastically adding, “Come be a part of this grassroots movement.”
The candidates who are scheduled to be present include, Erik Jensen, running for Shasta County D.A., Bob Holsinger for Shasta County Clerk, John Greene for Shasta County Sheriff, and a representative for Bryan Caples running for Shasta County Superintendent of Schools.
The event will be held at the Burney VFW Hall, located at 37392 Main Street/SR-299E, Burney, CA 96013. For more information about this event, contact Lindsi Haynes at (530) 524-7944.
