Contested elections and informed voters help keep a democracy healthy. This fall two candidates, Represenative Cory Atkins (Democrat for re-election) and Michael J. Benn (Republican), are vying to serve the next 2-year term as Representative in the Massachusetts House for the 14th Middlesex district.
Both candidates will appear before the voters on Wednesday, October 17, 7:30-8:30 p.m., in the Willard Elementary School auditorium at a Candidates’ Night sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Concord-Carlisle. The school is at 185 Powder Mill Road in Concord. The forum is free and open to the public.
Voters in the district may suggest questions by October 15 to firstname.lastname@example.org; please include street and town, and write questions so they may be answered by both candidates. The 14th Middlesex district includes all of Concord and Carlisle, precincts 1, 2 and 6 in Acton, and precincts 1 and 9 in Chelmsford.
