The Town Hall concept presented was precisely what you would expect: Opening monologues followed by questions and answers. These elected officials took turns addressing a full house that gathered at Trimble Community Center.

While the topics were politics, policy, and community questions/concerns, a major competing attraction was the twenty-one, fresh Pizza Hut pizzas purchased by Representative Harbison. This gathering of 80+ attendees did not leave the building with many leftovers remaining.
