Middlesex County DA and Governor’s Council Debates Available Online

The candidates for Middlesex County District Attorney,  Marian Ryan and Donna Patalano,  debated recently, at an event sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Arlington, Lexington and Winchester.  You can watch the candidates on NewTV (schedule below) and by using the link (also below), beginning at the 24-minute mark. 

The recording starts out with a short debate featuring District 3 Governor’s Council candidates Marilyn Petitto Devaney and Nick Carter.  Unfortunately, the forum planned by LWVN and NewTV with just these two candidates was canceled, so this session is the only one we have recorded.

Debate on NewTV’s Government Channel (Comcast 9 • RCN 13, 581 (HD) • Verizon 33):

  • Sunday, September 2nd– 7:30pm
  • Check the listings for other times!
