Check out the 2010 Progressive Voter Guide

The Progressive Voter Guide is a collection of information that progressive voters in Jamaica Plain (and beyond!) may find useful when deciding which candidate(s) to support in the Second Suffolk State Senate, 15th Suffolk State Rep and 6th Suffolk State Rep races.

Each candidate in each of these race was invited to fill out a questionnaire created by the members of the JP Progressives on a number of topics of importance to the group.

In addition, we invited each candidate in the Second Suffolk and 15th Suffolk races to speak, answer questions from the group based on their questionnaire, and meet members of the JP Progressives.

Each questionnaire is online. See the menu bar, above, to select which candidate’s questionnaire you would like to view.

Watch Video

On August 25, the JP Progressives had conversations with the candidates for the 2nd Suffolk Senate and 15th Suffolk Rep seat. Each candidate had previously submitted responses to the JPP Questionnaire. During this series of 25-30 minute conversations before about 40-50 JP voters,the JPP asked candidates to elaborate on their responses to the questionnaire, prior to opening up the floor to the audience.

Though we didn’t have an opportunity to do a forum for the open seat for the 6th Suffolk Representative, we did solicit questionnaires from the candidates for that seat. You can see the responses from those who chose to participate here.
