Representative Kandie Smith and Senator Don Davis say they’re trying to be as transparent as possible.

That’s why they held a town hall meeting Thursday.

Citizens shared concerns and lawmakers discussed what they’re working on in Raleigh.

One major part of Thursday’s town hall meeting was answering questions, Senator Davis and Representative Smith opening up the floor.

Someone asked, “What are you doing to stop bullying and suicide prevention in our schools?”

Davis replied, “We are working on a suicide prevention bill and you’ll see that rolled out by Tuesday”

Something Gloristine Brown, who attended the meeting, is happy to see

Brown said, “It’s based in trust and when you’re running, that’s what you’re putting in and what you’re telling people.”

Davis and Smith took time to go over several bills they’re working on, things like securing more money for The Brody School of Medicine.

Davis said, ‘Brody School of Medicine is essential to make sure we extend healthcare to rural Eastern NC.”

And several military bills that would help North Carolina become more military friendly.

Smith said, “This isn’t my house, it’s your house when we talk about the House of Representatives.”

There’s a living wage bill that would raise the minimum wage by 2024.

Smith said, “We gonna pray, we gonna fight and we gonna see what happens.”

There was probably around 50 people there Thursday.
