The Democratic candidates running for an open western Massachusetts state senate seat are meeting for a forum Sunday.
Rinaldo Del Gallo, Andrea Harrington and Adam Hinds are scheduled to take part in the forum at Lenox Town Hall Sunday. It starts at 11 o’clock. The Democrats are facing off in a September 8th primary in the race to succeed outgoing State Senator Ben Downing. The Democrat has represented the Berkshire, Hampshire, Franklin and Hampden District for a decade. State Representative Smitty Pignatelli is set to moderate. Christine Canning is the only Republican in the race. The three Democratic candidates are also scheduled to debate Thursday at Berkshire Community College in Pittsfield.
