Find Out Where the Gubernatorial Candidates Stand on the Environment

The outcome of this November’s gubernatorial election could have profound effects on the Massachusetts environment, given the obvious importance of the state environmental agencies under the Governor’s control. Groundwork Somerville and other environmental organizations are planning a gubernatorial forum for Tuesday, June 29, to ask the candidates about their views on environmental issues. Governor Patrick and Green Party candidate Jill Stein already have confirmed, and all candidates have been invited. This will be a fascinating event in an historic setting with opportunities for Q&A.

When: Tuesday, June 29, from 6 to 8 p.m.

Where: Old South Meeting House, 310 Washington Street, Boston

RSVP: This is a free event, but seating is limited. RSVP to
