It is our hope that you will join with statewide officials, mayors, county council members, sheriffs and school board members at our Community Cookout this August! This is a regular event hosted by Representative Ballentine as a way for friends and neighbors to interact with elected officials in a casual setting, right here in the community! Hearing directly from constituents is the best way they can do their job. Elected officials that stay in touch often – not just during campaign season – are more in tune with how to best serve their area. Enjoy your summer and please let us know how many from your family will be joining us! Bring the kids too!
