Celebrate the Changing of the Guard in NC’s 4th Congressional District Representative David Price Retires; Representative Valerie Foushee Joins Congress
Join the League of Women Voters of Orange, Durham, and Chatham Counties to recognize retired Representative David Price for his more than 30 years as a member of the US House of Representatives and to welcome Representative Valerie Foushee to her new role representing NC’s 4th Congressional district. The event is free and open to the public and will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 12 at the Chapel Hill Public Library.
Former Representative Price will share reflections on his 17 terms in office and Representative Foushee, who began her first term in January, will share her initial impressions of Congress and the challenges ahead.
David Price represented the Research Triangle area for 34 years before retiring in January. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from UNC-Chapel Hill and a Bachelor of Divinity degree and a Ph.D. in political science from Yale University. As a legislator, he was a sponsor of many bills, but counts his involvement with the passage of the Affordable Care Act as a highlight.
Valerie Foushee began her public service on the Chapel Hill-Carrboro School Board and went on to serve as the first Black woman on the Orange County Board of Commissioners. She has also served as a NC state representative and NC state senator before being elected to the US Congress in November 2022.
This celebration is free and open to the public, free parking is available.
