Second Worcester District Senate candidates to square off Tuesday night

Posted by Ralph Ranalli June 15, 2008 06:07 AM

The Shrewsbury Democratic Town Committee is hosting a debate Tuesday night between Doug Belanger and Michael Moore, the two declared Democratic candidates for the state Senate seat being vacated by Senator Edward M. Augustus Jr. of Worcester.

CORRECTION: Due to a scheduling error, this item was published a day early. Prior versions said the debate was being held tomorrow, which would have been read as Monday evening. The debate is Tuesday night.

The debate will be held at at 7 p.m. at the Shrewsbury High School Presentation Room. Organizers said that they will be videotaping the event, but that no information was yet available about when the debate would be broadcast on local cable television stations.

Augustus announced earlier this year that he would not seek a third term. The Second Worcester district includes Auburn, Grafton, Leicester, Millbury, Shrewsbury, Upton and part of the city of Worcester.
