U.S. Rep. Walter B. Jones, R-N.C., was the guest on the most recent edition of the Radio Hatteras interview show, “To the Point,” which was broadcast on May 3.
Jones, who describes himself as an “independent Republican,” is serving his 11th term representing 22 coastal counties, including Dare, in the U.S. House of Representatives. During his two decades in the House, he has been active in supporting issues of importance to Hatteras Island, including public access to the seashore, dredging inlets, and commercial fishing — just to name a few.
In this wide-ranging interview, Jones talks about these issues and much more — offshore drilling, the cost of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, Congress’ refusal to debate a resolution on the current bombing campaign against ISIS, and the role of money and power in Washington.
“To the Point,” which is hosted by Island Free Press editor Irene Nolan, airs on the island’s community radio station, FM 101.5 and FM 99.9, at 5 p.m. on the first and third Sunday of each month. It is repeated on the second and fourth Sunday. Those who don’t live on Hatteras can listen to the show on Sundays through live streaming at www.radiohatteras.org.
