The Northborough, Worcester, Marlborough, and Worcester Seven Hills Tea Parties are co-sponsoring a critical debate on September 7th, 7:00-9:00 p.m., at Westborough’s DoubleTree Hotel, 5400 Computer Drive (Rts. 9 & 495). All five Republican candidates seeking to unseat U.S. Congressman James McGovern will participate -- Robert Chipman, Robert Delle, Brian Herr, Marty Lamb and Mike Stopa.

This pivotal event will provide voters with the final opportunity to witness an interactive debate among the candidates, and to decide who should challenge incumbent McGovern in November. Mr. McGovern has run unopposed in five of the last seven elections.The Massachusetts Primary is on September 14th.

According to Mike Long, co-founder of the Northborough Tea Party; “Because this debate is so crucial, we went to great lengths to create a format that will produce a true picture of the candidates’ stance on key issues – in addition to responding to prepared questions which have not been disclosed to the candidates, they will have the opportunity to query one another on issues where they have differences.”

The debate is open to the general public and members of the press. Admission is free.
