Great ‘Green’ candidate debate
Mayor Carolyn Kirk faces-off with Mac Bell on environmental issues when the Gloucester UU Meeting House hosts the “Great Green Candidate Debate” on Tuesday, Oct. 15, at 7:15 p.m. Both candidates share a passion for green initiatives, and moderator Jack Clarke fields the questions that get the answers that define their environmental platforms. The 209 year old UU church has launched its own zero carbon goal green initiative, and we’d be grateful if those who’d like to support it might make a donation of $20 (or what you can afford at the door). A complimentary ‘green’ dessert buffet follows. For information/reservation, visit: maritimegloucester.org,
