Virtual Candidates Forum, sponsored by Boston Democratic Ward Committees of Wards 8, 9, 10, 11, 19 and 20.
Join us August 12th for a Virtual Candidates Forum, featuring candidates for MA Congressional Districts 7 and 8 and for U.S. Senate.
In this time of social distancing when we are unable to gather in person, we know that our votes count more than ever. As we begin the Vote by Mail process for the September 1st Democratic Primary, this Virtual Candidates Forum is part of these Boston Democratic Ward Committees efforts to protect our democracy and increase voter participation for these crucial elections.
Via a zoom webinar format, we will not only get to hear from the candidates in MA 8th Congressional race, Congressmen Stephen Lynch and Dr. Robbie Goldstein, and in the US Senate race, Senator Ed Markey and Congressman Joe Kennedy, but we will also hear from Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley who represents the 7th Congressional District.
In addition, we will begin the night with a meet and greet and have invited Senators Sonia Chang-Diaz and Mike Rush as well as State Representatives Ed Coppinger, Nika Elugardo, Liz Malia, Liz Miranda, Jon Santiago and Chynah Tyler. We are also inviting the two candidates for Suffolk County Register of Probate, Felix D. Arroyo, and Kerby Roberson to participate.
The event will be moderated by Tanisha M. Sullivan, President of the Boston Chapter of the NAACP.
