My web site has some of the basic information about this election and the district at http://home.earthlink.net/~abe…
I’ve had the chance to meet with committees across the district (so far, Wilmington, Groveland, West Newbury, Newbury, Boxford, Middleton, Manchester, Gloucester, and Rockport) and I’ve been gratified by the reception my candidacy has garnered.
There are a lot of questions about this seat, the responsibilities of the DSC members for the district, the election process, and where we go as a district to elect Democrats to the legislature and beyond. I hope to address some of these questions on the web site and in meetings over the next few weeks.
I look forward to continuing to meet with the committees over the next few weeks.
