Those of us living in North Carolina's Ninth Congressional District are lucky to have former diplomat and Chair of Mecklenburg's Board of County Commissioners and current member of the Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners, Jennifer Roberts, running to represent us in Congress. At BlueNC and Democratic Muse we are lucky to have her as our guest for a live blog Wednesday evening at 7:00 p.m.
While questions may be posted below, the official event will be at BlueNC. Please join in and follow along at BlueNC tomorrow evening.
Jennifer was born and raised in Charlotte and graduated from East Mecklenburg High School. She attended UNC on the prestigious Morehead Scholarship and holds masters degrees in International Affairs from both John's Hopkins and the University of Toronto.
She served as a diplomat with the US Department of State for three and a half years before returning to Charlotte with her husband in 1993.
Roberts has given back to the community in many ways and has been appointed to numerous boards and commissions - both political and charitable. According to the Mecklenburg County web site, "She is a recipient of the Maya Angelou Women Who Lead Award, the William Friday Fellowship, and the Counselors of Real Estate Creative Thinkers Award."
Please join me in welcoming Jennifer Roberts to BlueNC. Feel free to leave your questions below. Thank you. We look forward to your participation Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.
