Report From MA-05 Candidates Forum

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get up to Lowell today for the New(s) England Revolution Conference which featured a candidate's forum for the Democrats seeking to replace Marty Meehan (D-Lowell) in the fifth district. Luckily for all of us, Mike Ball has a report at Left Ahead. Here's how he describes the event:

They largely want to bring our troops in Iraq home -- with some spongy wording (no time tables and words about making sure they were safe). Likewise, they offered greater distinction in the way they described their backgrounds than in their positions on hot issues.
Following that, he runs down his impressions on each candidate. Check it out for more information!

Update: Lowell Register of Deeds and blogger extraordinaire Dick Howe has his impressions of the forum and points to the pictures on the MA-05 Flikr group.

Update 2: Tony Accardi has posted his thoughts over at Dick Howe's blog and BMG has posted a thread for comments on the session.

Update 3: The Lowell Sun published its report on the event, and there's more commentary from Left in Lowell and Lowell School Committee member Jackie Doherty.
