The Ward 4 Dems partnered with the Ward 5 Committee to host a big-picture discussion about the challenges and opportunities facing Massachusetts in this busy election year. With Marathon Monday as our backdrop, we invited all the Democratic hopefuls for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Auditor, and Secretary of the Commonwealth to share their priorities as they sprint to the September 6th Primary.
Once again, we were indeed fortunate to have Callie Crossley, GBH Radio and TV commentary, as our moderator. Callie brought insight and substance to each of two back-to-back conversations among a mix of candidates. She added a bit of levity in the lightning round, inviting candidates to share their favorite Massachusetts park, museum, historical figure, and weekend adventure.
Our next candidate forum is scheduled for May 23rd, when Boston Globe editorial writer Renée Loth will moderate a debate featuring the three candidates running for Attorney General.
