 Healey Campaign Commits to Inclusive and Accessible Primary Debate Plan, Including Two Pre-Primary Debates

Healey has also committed to two live media forums prior to June Convention

BOSTON – Maura Healey’s campaign for Governor is committing to two live, media-sponsored debates before the September primary. The campaign has also already committed to two live media-affiliated forums before the Democratic State Convention in June.

 

“Media-sponsored forums and debates are important opportunities for voters to hear directly from the candidates,” said Healey Campaign Manager Jason Burrell. “Since launching her campaign two months ago, Maura has enjoyed participating in several forums and has participated in more than 70 caucuses where she has engaged with voters and answered their questions. She looks forward to continued opportunities to share our vision for Massachusetts and urges that these events are inclusive and accessible for all residents.”

 

In a letter sent today, the campaign confirmed that Healey will be participating in the first media-affiliated forum on Tuesday, April 19, more than a month before the convention. The forum is hosted by the Boston Ward 4 and Ward 5 Democrats at 6:30 pm and moderated by GBH’s Callie Crossley. The second forum is sponsored by WBUR and the Environmental League of Massachusetts on Wednesday, April 27 at 6 pm.

 

The Healey campaign is committing to two media-sponsored, live televised debates between the Convention and the primary. The campaign stressed that these debates should be accessible for Spanish language-only speakers and hearing- and visually-impaired constituents, and available in every region of the state.

 

Over the past two months, Healey has participated in several live forums, including with Progressive Democrats of Massachusetts, the SEIU State Council, and the Black and Latinx Municipal Caucus.
