Area lawmakers will gather on Thursday, Sept. 13 to discuss issues from the recent special legislative session as part of a Town Hall event hosted by the Starkville Daily News.

The slate of speakers will include lawmakers representing at least some part of Oktibbeha County, including State Rep. Gary Chism, a Columbus Republican; State Rep. Rob Roberson, a Starkville Republican; State Rep. Cheikh Taylor, a Starkville Democrat; and State Sen. Angela Turner-Ford, a West Point Democrat.

The format of the Town Hall will allow each legislator to give their takeaways from the special legislative session, which included the approval of a state lottery and the allocation of BP settlement money.

There will also be an opportunity for those in attendance to ask questions of the legislators, time permitting.

The Town Hall will begin at 6 p.m. and last until 7:30 p.m. in the community room at the Starkville Police Department.

The Starkville Daily News will also provide a live stream of the event on Facebook.
