ROCKINGHAM — Some might think mixing alcohol and politics is a bad idea, but one local group is doing just that.

Richmond Young Professionals is hosting its second Pints and Politics event Tuesday, where constituents can have a brew or two and ask questions of candidates for office.

RYP member David Stogner said the addition of beer is a way to bring out some young adults who might not otherwise get involved.

“We thought it would lighten the mood a little bit,” he said. “We didn’t want it to be stale … just a light atmosphere, so people felt that they could have a one-on-one conversation with somebody running for office.”
