Two local supporters of President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will represent the candidates during a Tuesday afternoon presidential forum in Oak Ridge.
Syd Ball will offer the views of Obama, a Democrat seeking a second term as president in the Nov. 6 election. Ball is serving on the local Obama For America “Pen Points” (letters to the editor) committee, a press release said.
Joe Bailey, chairman of the East Tennessee campaign for Romney, will present the views of Romney, the Republican opposing Obama. The press release said Bailey was a delegate to the Republican Convention this summer.
The Democratic and Republican representatives will deliver opening statements and answer questions about the candidate they are representing, the press release said. The audience is encouraged to take part by submitting questions to the speakers.
