The two District 7 city council candidates who garnered the most votes in the recent primary to
fill the seat of former City Councilor Chuck Turner have agreed to a debate at the South End Library on Thursday, March 10 at 6:30 PM. Tito Jackson and Cornell Mills will each present brief opening statements, after which they'll answer questions. Steve Fox, chair of the Rutland Square Association, will moderate the debate. The Friends of the South End Library encourages everyone to meet the candidates and express their concerns: one of them will be our councilor and vote on libraries, schools, parks and basic services. The Special Election will take place on Tuesday, March 15. While the Special Election only applies to residents of District 7, which includes the South End Library, South End patrons who live outside of the district might want to meet these candidates as well. In case you wonder about what district you live in, here is the map for District 7 and here is the one for District 2, currently represented by City Councilor Bill Linehan.
