Effingham County holds 'Eggs and Issues'

Posted: Updated:
EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

Residents of Georgia House District 161 gathered on Wednesday for Eggs and Issues, where they could ask a wide variety of questions about what happened in the recent legislative session while enjoying a nice breakfast.

Some topics that were spoken of included the gun safety laws and the port expansion.

Georgia Representative Bill Hitchens said this is a wonderful opportunity for people in the community to get involved with the government.

"It gives, you know, it gives citizens the opportunity to really have a role besides voting," said Hitchens. "You know we had the elections [Tuesday]. This gives them the opportunity to ask questions."

This is one of two events where people can submit questions, the other being prior to the legislative session.
