Round’n’round with Rep. Meadows

Recently, U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows made the rounds in his district visiting with constituents. While in Haywood County, he made a stop at the county fair. With a table full of political schwag, the representative held court in a building sandwiched between agricultural exhibitions and carnival rides. 

Before hurrying on to his next destination — flipping a coin at a high school football game — Meadows agreed to sit down for a brief interview on the Ferris wheel.

But there was no Ferris wheel at the Haywood County Fair. So, Meadows took a ride on the considerably swifter Paratrooper. As the ride hummed and the wind hissed, the representative addressed topics ranging from beheadings in Iraq to Swain County’s Road to Nowhere money.
