Mayor Carolyn Kirk faces-off with Mac Bell on environmental issues when the Gloucester UU Meeting House hosts the “Great Green” candidate debate 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 those who can afford it are asked to support it with a donation of $20, or any donation of $1 or more at the door. A complimentary “green” dessert buffet will follow. For reservations, visit www.maritimegloucester.org.
