Ware and Gage Hold Online Town Hall on October 1, 2016 to engage with County residents
Salem County, NJ — Freeholder Candidates, current Freeholder Lee Ware and Salem City Councilman Earl Gage, are holding their first online Town Hall meeting (and as far as the public being included in such, the very first live public online Q & A Town Hall Meeting by any Salem County Officials) on Saturday, October 1st at 9:00 am. Using the Salem County Democrats Facebook Page, Mr. Lee Ware and Mr. Earl Gage will answer questions posted by members of the Salem County community.
“Each election season candidates are able to visit with the people at different events and in their neighborhoods. It gives us a chance to introduce ourselves. Most importantly, it gives opportunity to listen to resident’s ideas – what is going well and what presents an opportunity for improvement,” said current Salem County sole Democratic Freeholder Lee Ware. “They talk and we listen.”
“But, we can’t get to meet everyone face to face,” said Gage. “This is a new approach for us. Social media is an important part of any campaign these days. Over the next weeks, right up until Election Day, Lee and I will be posting our positions on matters that affect Salem County. More than ever in the past few years, Salem County needs representatives who will listen and hear what is important to our residents.”
