Candidates for Governor Series in Wellesley

massWe hope you can join us at the upcoming Meet-the-Candidate Series, sponsored by the Wellesley Democratic Town Committee. Each of the Democratic gubernatorial candidates will be coming to Wellesley for a public evening with members of the committee, Democratic activists, students, and the wider Wellesley and neighboring communities. Some of the events will open with a short presentation by a candidate for Lt. Governor or Treasurer.

The series is a great opportunity to learn more about the candidates, their background, positions, and visions for Massachusetts — and to ask questions about the issues that are most important to us. The format of this and all the events will be a brief presentation by the candidate, followed by Q &A with the audience, and informal conversation, as time allows. Light refreshments will be served.
