Candidate Night At First Church Somerville Moderated By Me!

On October 25th, I will be moderating a Candidate's Forum at First Church Somerville UCC located at 89 College Avenue right outside of Davis Square. This will be my first time moderating a discussion and I'm very appreciative that my church asked me to do this. If you're not doing anything that night, stop by and hear what the candidates have to say!

Reverend Molly Baskette writes, "Have you always wanted to know what your alderman really thinks about poverty, immigration, the environment? What if there was an Occupy.Somerville movement–would they support it, and how?

First Church Somerville UCC, a progressive church home for spiritual seekers, is hosting a Candidate Forum on Tuesday, October 25. Candidates for alderman in Somerville, both incumbents and challengers, will engage in a panel discussion dedicated to issues of social justice, such as poverty, immigration, and environmental sustainability. Courtney O’Keefe, First Churcher and popular commentator on political issues in Somerville ( will moderate the event. Sweets and a chance to meet the candidates will precede the panel discussion."
