FYI for folks who live in District 17; I will be at this forum and will take notes & post them to the blog…
A Get to Know the D-17 Candidates Forum for the State Representative seat will be held this Thursday, August 28 at 6:00 PM at the Worcester Lodge of Elks, 233 Mill St., Worcester, MA.
District 17 is made up of all of Leicester, all five precincts of Worcester’s Ward 7 and Ward 8, Precincts 2,3,4. For this seat, three Democrats (Doug Belanger, Moses Dixon and Mike Germain) are vying for the right to meet Republican candidate, Kate Campanale, in the November election. All four candidates will participate in the forum.
Asking questions of the candidates will be Walter Bird, Senior Writer for Worcester Magazine (the forum’s main sponsor), Hank Stolz, WCRN radio personality and host of The Hank Stolz Experience on Charter TV3, and Gary Rosen, District 5 Worcester City Councilor and host of Rosen’s Roundtable on WCCA TV13.
Besides fielding questions from the panel, the candidates will be allowed to ask probing questions of each other.
During the forum, a cash bar will be operated by the Elks Lodge to help support its community service and scholarship programs.
