Representing the No on 3 campaign will be Devlin Daneshforouz, outreach director for the Coalition to Defeat Question 3.

Representing the Guinn Center for Policy Priorities will be Meredith Levine, director of economic policy. The Guinn Center is a third party that is neutral on the topic of Energy Choice.

Questions collected from the VEA Ambassador Legislative Committee will be presented to the panel. Due to time constraints, the panelists will not field questions from the audience.

Doors are scheduled to open at 3:30 p.m. with the program starting at 4 p.m. RSVP by emailing ambassadorRSVP@vea.coop or calling Ryan Muccio at 775-727-2745.
