CCOC was honored to host the North Carolina Institute of Political Leadership (NCIOPL) Hometown Debate Series at The Clayton Center on October 9, 2018.
“The goal of these events is to encourage and enhance education dialogue at a local level - equipping voters with information they can use to make more informed business, policy, and electoral decisions,” said NCIOPL Board Chair Nelle Hotchkiss.
The debate in Clayton focused on the proposed amendment of increasing legislative control over appointments to the bipartisan elections and ethics board.
“We are pleased to bring this public service opportunity to our community,” said Dana Wooten, CEO of the Clayton Chamber of Commerce. “NCIOPL’s mission is centered around fair political discourse on issues, and these debates will provide the opportunity to do just that.”
The debate was taped and broadcasted by Spectrum News.
NCIOPL is a non-partisan, nonprofit organization whose mission is to educate future political and community leaders in modern campaign strategy, ethical decision making, and governance, such that its participants will have a sound grounding in ethical behavior, consensus building, and cooperative and collaborative leadership.
