Candidates vying for the open seats in two wards will gather in the Koussevitzky Arts Center at 6 p.m. Monday for the debate. In Ward 5, Jonathan Lothrop, Eugene Maselli, and Patrick Kavey will face off, and Edward Carmel, Craig Gaetani, Dina Guiel Lampiasi, and Joseph Nichols in Ward 6. BCC says all seven are expected to attend, which will be televised on Pittsfield Community Television.
