Clay Aiken – Listen..Discuss..Then Vote!

 

It started early in the morning and ended after dinner…yes…that was Tuesday for Clay Aiken!

The day started with Clay tweeting to let all of us know how he started the day.

Clay Aiken ‏@ClayForNC 
Hosting a business roundtable in Cary this morning. Great convo about issues affecting NC small…

Another tweet came in about the meeting…

Leading a morning business roundtable w Clay Aiken. First question: ACA. @ The Matthews House in Cary

What a smart thing to do…Clay invited people in the business arena to get together and talk about the needs of the business community in District 2 and then discuss how they can work together to solve the problems for the businesses and for the citizens of District 2.

And…the Matthews House.  I hope I will get to see this beautiful building someday!

Located in historic downtown Cary on Chatham Street, The Matthews House is a stately Greek revival mansion nestled among giant oaks and lush flower gardens.

In the evening, Clay traveled to the town of Apex.  He attended an important meeting hosted by Jen Geurin Ferrell, a Citizen Lobbyist and a  political activist who founded Forward Americans.  Jen travels though out North Carolina encouraging all people to listen, discuss, and most important, VOTE!  I bet she never leaves home without voter registration cards she can pass out.

Tuesday night, Jen invited her open minded GOP & unaffiliated neighbors and friends to meet with Clay Aiken and Lisa Baker from District 36.
Gen told me that there were at least 20 people in attendance and that is was a great first step in encouraging people to have open minds.

According to Jen, Clay did a great job relating to the group.  He listened to everyone’s concerns and addressed each one.  The discussion covered many diverse topics including public education, student debt, and access to clean drinking water that is free of coal ash.  Many were concerned about fracking in the area.

Jen sent the following tweets about the evening:

Grateful for @ClayForNC @clayaiken’s time w/ open minded GOP & unaffiliated friends this evening! Common ground ya’ll @ForwardAmerican

Opening minds & hearts w/ the truth of what is at stake in #nc02. @ClayForNC @clayaiken connecting w/ R&Us is real. @ForwardAmerican

@ForwardAmerican

What a great idea to host a meeting in your home that allows everyone to have a voice.

And a big thank you to Jen Geurin Ferrell for the wonderful pictures and the recap of the evening!!

  1. When does Clay have time to sleep?! Loved the two extremely different settings for his meetings with questioners/voters.

  2. Today’s article reminds me that Clay is truly REAL. He is comfortable when visiting a home for discussions of REAL issues in the district and the REAL ways in which issues can be resolved. Clay recognizes that the ordinary citizens of this nation should be the REAL focus of Congress because they possess REAL input for solving local problems and business concerns, which has often saved our country from disaster. Yes, Clay has taken the REAL bull by the horns by supporting legislation that edifies our towns and cities and provides safety and equality for all. Let us continue to back Clay so that he will have an opportunity to make a REAL difference!
