"Voting Energy 2010" forum in West Barnstable features candidates for U.S. Congress, State Senate races

"Voting Energy 2010" forum will be held at Cape Cod Community College on Tuesday, June 15th

Open seats, interesting candidates, and contested races make for an exciting primary season. This forum will focus attention on the energy-related positions of individuals seeking to replace Representative William Delahunt in Washington and Senator Robert O'Leary on Beacon Hill. It will be held on Tuesday, June 15, from 6:30pm to  9pm in Science Lecture Hall A at Cape Cod Community College, Route 132 in West Barnstable.

In addition to CIRenew and CCCC, cosponsors include WCAI - the Cape & Islands NPR station, Housing Assistance Corp., and the Marine Renewable Energy Center at UMass Dartmouth. Mindy Todd, host of "The Point" each weekday morning on WCAI, will moderate, alternating between questions prepared by cosponsors and submitted by members of the audience.

On issues from pricing carbon to drilling for oil, from capitalizing on Cape Wind to creating green jobs in local communities, the following candidates have been invited to make their case to voters of all types:

State Senate

  • Jim Crocker (R)
  • Sheila Lyons (D)
