Next week, we’re headed North, up to the 1st Essex MA Senate district. A candidate for this open seat will talk strategy, what she thinks the constituents want, and how she expects to jump from Newburyport’s Town Council. Maybe we can get Kathleen (Katy) O’Connor Ives to compare and contrast the field.
This rare open Senate seat came open when Steven Baddour quit in March to join a big Boston law firm. Three Dems, two Republicans and two unenrolled have jumped in.
Candidate forums and similar public events are pretty diffuse and confusing. We’ll narrow in on O’Connor Ives for a personal picture. You can check her full background and platform at her campaign site. We’re surmising that the winner of the Dem primary on September 6th has a great shot at the office.
If you can catch us live, do that Tuesday, August 28th at 2:30 PM Eastern here. Afterward, her show will be available at that URL, back here at Left Ahead and on our iTunes page for listening in a player or downloading.
