Hampden Superior Court Clerk Candidates to Debate August 9
Posted August 7, 2012
Western New England University School of Law will host a debate featuring the four Democratic candidates for Hampden Superior Court Clerk on Thursday, August 9 at 7:00 p.m. The debate, which will be held in the Blake Law Center’s J. Gerard Pellegrini Moot Court Room, is free and open to the public.
“This debate will provide an opportunity to for each candidate to speak directly to voters about their vision for this office, which plays an important role in the administration of justice here in Hampden County,” says Arthur D. Wolf, moderator and director of the School of Law’s Institute for Legislative and Governmental Affairs.
The hour-long debate will feature candidates Thomas Ashe, John DaCruz, Linda Stec DiSanti, and Laura Gentile. The candidates face off in the Democratic primary September 6. Current Superior Court Clerk Brian Lees is not running for re-election.
While the forum is open to the public, seating in the Pellegrini Moot Court Room is limited. Additional seating will be provided in the Law Center Commons, where guests will be able to watch the debate live on a wide-screen television. The debate will also be available live via the internet. People interested in accessing the webcast can visit the School of Law’s web page at www.law.wne.edu for a link to the live stream.
