A Town Hall meeting with state legislators discussing statewide issues will be held today in Grand Salon of the USU at 6 p.m.

This is one of three forums that make up “Big Politics,” an event A.S. has created and funded for this week.

The participants include State Assemblyman Cameron Smyth, State Assemblyma Mike Feuer, Wood Ranch Restaurant Chain Founder and Owner Eric Anders, Valley Industry and Commerce Association Chair-Elect Coby King and State Controller’s Deputy Chief of Staff Audrey Noda.

The events were created to raise awareness and get students involved in politics, according to the A.S. website.

“I think it’s really important for students to be given the opportunity to be informed and take part in politics. The state summit will answer questions about their concerns,” said A.S. Senator Nicole Corlett, a business marketing senior.

The last event of the series will be focusing on local politics. The mayoral discussion will be held Tuesday, May 15th at 5:30 p.m. at the Grand Salon of the USU.
