KC Spangle, general manager of the Chick-fil-A in Monkey Junction where the Americans for Prosperity’s bus stopped Aug. 7 to organize a rally against health care reform, said the restaurant was not picking sides in the health-care debate.
“We do not have an opinion on the issue,” he said.
“We were approached by the radio station to do a live remote broadcast from our store, which is something we’ve done in the past,” Spangle said, referring to The Big Talker F.M., which broadcast The Morning Beat with Curtis Wright from the four-hour event that drew hundreds of people opposed to the current health legislation.
Spangle said the restaurant has made its parking lot available for other public events with the radio station, such as a coffee with the candidates for people to meet those running for local office.
