5th CD Wrestling Match June 2nd

Bem-vindo! Come grill and revel in the candidates to replace U.S. Rep. Marty Meehan. We'll gather them for you Saturday, June 2nd, from 10 a.m. to noon. We'll be in Hudson, MA, at the Portuguese Club, 13 Port Street.

The starting point is the red-hot and hard-to-navigate health care complex of issues. Questions will come from the audience. Blog readers can get a leg up by posting questions for the candidates here.

The event is in the spirit of our previous one with the lieutenant governor's in the last election. Our motley crew of BlogLeft bloggers will co-sponsor this one with M&W Dems.

There'll be free WiFi for sure with live blogging. We hope to get a video feed working, but make no promises. This is a chance to see the candidates strut and sweat. It's worth attending.

Cool! Maybe you can ask who will take the baton from Meehan on repeal of DADT.

feel free to ignore my last comment - i didn't pick up on the gigantic HEALTH CARE title of the event. Made the same mistake over at BMG. :)

Sigh. Marty has had strong positions on don't ask, the latest wars, and many progressive issues. Then he had seniority and was thoroughly plugged in. I fear we lose a lot in the 5th CD slot regardless of who takes over. I don't immediately see someone in Congress rushing to stand up the way he has. To your point though, we need to watch and ask your question and related ones.
