Three Matt Patrick meet and greets planned

State Senator Dan Wolf special guest at August 28 gathering in Waquoit

Three meet and greets with State Senatorial candidate Matt Patrick (D-Waquoit) have been planned for the Upper Cape. Patrick, a former five-term state representative, announced in March that he would run to replace State Senator Therese Murray. Murray, who has represented the Plymouth and Barnstable District for the past two decades, is not seeking re-election.

The first of the three meet and greets will be held on Friday, August 22 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Lakefield Farms Clubhouse, 21 Great Hill Road in Sandwich. The event is hosted by Patti Mitchell. There will be beer, wine and soft drinks, appetizers and snacks and a door prize. 

The second of the three meet and greets, a fundraising event, will be held at Patrick's home at 24 Collins Road in Waquoit on Thursday, August 28 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. State Senator Dan Wolf will be the special guest. Suggested contributions are $25, $50 and $100.

The third of the meet and greets will be held at Cafe Chew, 4 Merchants Road in Sandwich. The time for this event has yet to be announced.

Patrick's State Senatorial bid ends a three-year absence from state politics. He is running unopposed in the September 9 Democratic state primary. Patrick will face Republican opponent Vinny M. deMacedo (R-Plymouth), who is also running unopposed in the state primary, in the November election.
