If you want to see People Powered Forums this August rather than just old style debates, here’s your chance!
With less than 8 weeks to go till the September 16th vote between John Kerry and Ed O’Reilly there really needs to be some discussion and dates set now.
Yesterday, July 24th, O’Reilly called on John Kerry to set up such forums and debates:
With the September 16th Primary less than eight weeks away, I believe it is time for us to schedule debates and other forums so that the voters of Massachusetts will have the ability to participate in democracy to its fullest extent.
You can read the full letter here.
The people are still waiting to hear back. Now is the critical time to call John Kerry’s campaign office and let him know that we want to hear from both candidates at forums across the state.
You can call Kerry’s campaign office at: 617-227-1460 for open forums
And please note that the Senate will not be in session for the whole month of August so there should be no reason that he can’t make time to speak with the people in such forums. (Well, he will be at the National Convention the last week in August, but all the more reason to plan now and make dates for the other 3 weeks!)
As a party we have made such strides for inclusion of the people and I hope we continue on with that process.
And lastly what are some issues and concerns you will bring up at the forums for both Kerry and O’Reilly?
