Rainbow Seniors of Berkshire County, Meet the Candidates at Berkshire Athenaeum
September 3, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Rainbow Seniors of Berkshire County is holding a Meet the Candidates event at our regularly scheduled Pittsfield meeting on Saturday, September 3rd.
All state senate candidates have accepted, and so have Tricia Farley-Bouvier and Mike Bloomberg. They will meet in the Berkshire Athenaeum from 2 to 4.
Each candidate will have an allotted amount of time to introduce themselves, and then each candidate would all take questions from the floor. In general, the questions would be focused on LGBTQ issues, senior issues, and issues of particular concern to LGBTQ seniors. According to the sponsors, there may well be non-LGBTQ seniors attending.
Age-Friendly Berkshires has also agreed to join in on the event, pretty much assuring a large complement of senior citizens of all genders and orientations. (Can you say “chronic voters”?) All that’s left is to find out if we can have the big downstairs auditorium at the Athenaeum and your agreement to participate for about 90 minutes
