YET ANOTHER UPDATE: Yet another update. Senator Warren is on her way. She was able to get a flight out of DC and is planning on stopping by. We don’t have an ETA but we are optimistic that all will work out.
UPDATE: Due to U. S. Senate votes, Senator Warren is unable to get to Massachusetts. Earlier today, I heard from Maura Healey, our Attorney General Elect that she will be joining us.
A special theme this year is celebrating BMG’s tenth anniversary. BMGers typically attend in force, although it is not exclusively a BMG event.
You’re all invited. Please join me at 17 Gary Circle in Westborough from 2 to 6 PM. It’s a football friendly, family friendly open house with people coming and going throughout the afternoon. I’ve got coat racks and a sign-in table set up in the garage. Children’s games are in the basement. It’s not for the claustrophobic. One BMGer told me that she came once and she’s glad she came, but she doesn’t plan to come again. Maybe she’s changed her mind and is ready to brave the crowds.
Expected guests include: Secretary of State Bill Galvin, Auditor Suzanne Bump, Treasurer Elect Deb Goldberg, Attorney General Elect Maura Healey, Congressman Jim McGovern, Congresswoman Katherine Clark, State Senators Jamie Eldridge, Tom McGee and Sal DiDomenico, State Reps Jen Benson, Carolyn Dykema, Paul Heroux, Kate Hogan, Chris Walsh and Representative elect Camine Gentile; District Attorney Marian Ryan, Governor’s Councilors: Marilyn Petitto Devaney, Bob Jubinville; Worcester County Register of Deed Tony Vigliotti. I’m pleased to mention that several people who ran for statewide office last year plan to join us: Joe Avellone, Mike Lake, Leland Cheung and James Arena DeRosa are all planning on stopping by. It’s a holiday open house with candidates coming and going like everyone else.
An added incentive to come to the holiday party is the chance to get a Democrat elected to a seat that is currently held by a Republican. Folks can knock on a few doors and then head over to my place for the big holiday party! I’ve created a separate facebook event for that. Both current Party Chair Senator Tom McGee and previous Party Chair John Walsh are planning on pre-party canvassing. I’ll be talking more about that race once we get through the holiday party. Instead of looking back at the Governor’s race, look forward to this winnable race. There are lots of voters to talk with out here. We’ve seen the poster around from Elizabeth Warren. “We can whimper, we can whine, we can fight back. Me? I’m fighting back.” RSVP here if you want to fight back and elect an outstanding Democrat, Jason Palitsch to this seat. While you are checking it out, like him on facebook as well.

Everyone is welcome. We are about a mile from the Westborough Commuter Rail station. We’ll arrange for a pickup for anyone who wants to come by train. Please note that street parking gets problematic. I’m encouraging people to park at the Middle School if possible. It’s at 20 Fisher Street in Westborough, just a couple of minutes walk.
Are you in? Let folks know!
