Irish dogs and other thoughts

On the parade trail in Worcester yesterday, Congressman Lynch greeted thousands of people and one extremely Irish dog. The Worcester parade kicked off a long week of St. Patrick's Day fanfare, so prepare for an onslaught of bad jokes from Salem, Haverhill, Lowell, Boston and other cities and towns where toasting and roasting have become local tradition. Just remember 'tis all in good fun.* 

In other campaign news:

  1. The first two debates have officially been scheduled.  Congressmen Lynch and Markey will meet on Wednesday, March 27 (just 16 days away!) at 7pm.  The first debate will be hosted by the Boston media consortium, which includes WGBH-TV, NECN, WCVB-TV, WHDH-TV, WGBH Radio, WBUR Radio and Bloomberg Radio.  The final debate will be held on April 22 (just eight days before the primary election) and will be hosted by WBZ-TV and the Boston Globe. We continue to work with the Markey campaign to schedule debates in Lowell, New Bedford, Springfield, and Worcester. 
  2. At the request of IBEW 1228, whose camera operators, technicians, and editors have gone nearly two years without a new contract, Congressman Lynch has decided not to buy campaign advertising on WCVB.  
  3. The two Democratic candidates appeared on stage together for the first time Saturday at the SEIU candidate forum.  You can read about the event here, but I just wanted to note - and I think both campaigns can agree - Saturday's event was really well put together.  Great crowd, fair format, strong questions, and a lot of positive energy.  Kudos to the SEIU organizers.
  4. We have a great section on the webpage where people can post their own endorsement of Congressman Lynch.  Check it out and ad your video or message with your reasons for supporting Stephen Lynch. We welcome any supporter to post. 

*Free preview joke: Dan Winslow, Gabe Gomez, and Mike Sullivan walk into a bar...sorry I've got nothing. I've never heard of them either.
