NEW: Candidates Forum To Be Held For Five-Way Primary

Thursday, August 09, 2012


A candidates forum for the 15th Worcester District is scheduled to be held later this month as five Democrats are preparing to face off in the primary on Sept. 6.

Worcester’s Ward 10 democrats are hosting the forum on Aug. 22 with candidates Frank Beshai, Dianna Biancheria, Mary Keefe, Ralph Perez and Kate Toomey.
After State Rep. Vincent Pedone announced he would be stepping down earlier this year, five candidates are scrambling for the chance to be the Democratic nominee to face off against Republican Brian O’Malley.

Cosponsors of the forum, along with the Ward 10 Democrats, are Women Together, Crown Hill Neighborhood Association, Neighbor To Neighbor and the Worcester Unemployment Action Group.

Questions have been submitted to the candidates in advance and will include referendum questions that are on the ballot.

The candidate's forum will be Wednesday, Aug. 22, at Elm Park Towers on 425 Pleasant St., Worcester from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

The general election is Tuesday, Nov. 6. To vote in the primary, people must register by Aug. 17 and for the general by Oct. 17.

Volunteers at the event will be registering voters for the general election and helping people fill out absentee ballot applications.
