The Progressive Democrats of Somerville (PDS) sent questionnaires to candidates for Ward 6 Alderman. All four candidates responded and are seeking the endorsement of PDS. Current Alderman Rebekah Gewirtz is not seeking re-election. The Preliminary Election on THURSDAY, September 17 will narrow the four down to two who will face off in November. Links to responses are below.

The Somerville Democratic City Committee is sponsoring a public forum on Thursday September 10 at 7:00 pm at the First Church Somerville UCC at 89 College Avenue. All four Ward 6 candidates have agreed to appear and all of the public is invited to attend. We encourage you to come and hear the candidates in person.

After the forum we will open up our on-line endorsement process.
