Trone, Parrott tackle issues at ‘heated’ forum

October 26, 2022

As a first-time voter, Jaelynn Harris appreciated the chance to hear in person two candidates explain why they should be elected. Harris, 19, of Baltimore County, is a sophomore at Frostburg State University in the wildlife studies program. Monday evening, she was a student moderator at a forum for Maryland Congressional District 6 candidates Democratic incumbent U.S. Rep. David Trone and Republican state Del. Neil Parrott. The event was hosted by FSU, Allegany College of Maryland, Garrett College and Hagerstown Community College. “This is going to be my first official election that I’m voting in,” Harris said and added that she learned more from seeing the candidates live at the forum than she has via political advertisements or websites. “I got a lot out of it. … It was a really good experience.”
