Town hall meetings have become a signature of the James Akers, Jr. for County Council Campaign and Mr. Akers has promised a town hall meeting at least once a month if elected as the District 24 County Councilor.   “These town hall meetings give me the opportunity to hear community concerns first-hand. This input is invaluable to my understanding the will of the people and, I believe, is necessary to govern effectively.” Akers said.  For a full list of Mr. Akers campaign events please visit http://www.VoteAkers.com
