By on September 20, 2018

The 2018 General Election is just around the corner. To learn more about the candidates on the ballot, the Outer Banks Association of REALTORS® (OBAR) and the Outer Banks Home Builders Association (OBHBA) invites the community to join them for a free Candidate Forum on September 26th. Space will be limited so the Associations ask that attendees RSVP to the OBAR office as soon as possible.

This event will take place within the ballroom at the Ramada Plaza in Kill Devil Hills, NC. The evening will begin with complimentary light hors d’oeuvres during which guests will have the opportunity to mingle with the local and state candidates (6:00PM-6:45PM). Following the meet and greet, the OBAR and OBHBA Legislative Chairs will lead the candidates in a two-hour forum (7:00PM-9:00PM).

Candidates in attendance will include Cole Phelps and Bob Steinburg for NC Senate District 1, Bobby Hanig and Tess Judge for NC House District 6, Jim Tobin and Rosemarie Doshier for Dare County Commissioner representing District 1, Anne Petera and Ervin Bateman for Dare County Commissioner representing District 2, and Rob Ross who is running unopposed for Dare County Commissioner representing District 5.


This event is open to all who are interested. Topics to be discussed include community housing, overcoming the unique challenges to our community, and development on the Outer Banks.

RSVP to obar@outerbanksrealtors.com or (252) 441-4036 before September 24, 2018.
