Boston, First Suffolk District State Representative candidate forum is scheduled
for Tuesday, October 21, 2014 at East Boston High School, 5:30p.m.-7:30 p.m.
East Boston High School teacher, Patrick Morse's debate class students studied
non-partisan local and state issues this fall to prepare for the first known
East Boston High School student lead and moderated non-partisan State
Representative candidate forum. The debate class students formulated the
questions for the forum. Two students from the debate class will moderate the
forum. This fall, The Commonwealth Lobby, a non-partisan voter registration
voter education organization collaborated with the East Boston High School
debate class in preparation of the on-campus student lead and moderated forum.
The students hope to get the answers they need to help inform East Boston
student voters and the East Boston community on and off campus before Election
Day on November 4.
On Tuesday from 5:30pm to 6:00pm, State Representative candidates, Carlo Basile,
incumbent, Celeste Ribeiro Myers, challenger will gather at East Boston High
School for a meet and greet opportunity for media interviews and interested
voters before the forum.
The State Representative candidate forum will begin in the EBH auditorium at
6:00pm. Each candidate will have equal time to introduce their campaign and
candidacy to attendees before the EBH student moderators ask the candidates
questions. This momentous civic engagement on-campus student lead and moderated
forum provides students with an opportunity to explore non-partisan contemporary
local and state issues, civically engage face to face with the candidates and
the community. Both state representative candidates enthusiastically support the
EBH student civic effort and confirmed they will attend the forum Tuesday.
