Congressional Candidates Night – Sept. 14

Candidate Caroline Colarusso

  The Winthrop Republican Town Committee (WRTC) “Meet the Congressional Candidates Night” will be held on Wednesday, September 14 at the Winthrop Senior Center (35 Harvard St.). This one-hour event will start at 7:00 p.m. sharp and admission is free.

  The Republican candidate for representative for the U.S. House of Representatives in Massachusetts’s District 5, Caroline Colarusso, has accepted the invitation and will be attending on September 14. The U.S. Congresswoman for the 5th District of Massachusetts, Katherine Clark, who is currently a Revere resident, has not responded to any calls to participate as of the time of writing. An open invitation has been reserved for Clark until just prior to the event. However, the event will be presented as planned on Wednesday, September 14 at 7:00 p.m., and the event promises to provide a deep understanding of the policies and the platform of at least one of the candidates.

  The “Meet the Congressional Candidates Night” will have the following format:

  1. Two-minute introduction by the WRTC Chairman.

  2. Two-three-minute address and greeting by the congressional candidates

  3. Moderator will then ask both candidates the same six to eight important questions affecting citizens of our Congressional District. Candidates will have up to two minutes to give their response.

  4. After the questions are completed, candidates will have three to five minutes to summarize their policies and/or address the audience as they choose.

  5. Questions from the audience as time permits.

  Four years ago, the WRTC began this highly successful nonpartisan forum of highlighting candidates during election seasons. This has given voters a familiarity with their candidates that is impossible to get from a sound bite, media ad or candidate’s flyer. These events have also introduced the candidates to their constituents and their constituents’ positions on the issues of the day. With a critical election year around the corner, it is imperative America casts educated votes.
