The 11th Plymouth District State Representative debate scheduled for Tuesday Night on Easton Community Access Television between Democratic candidate Claire Cronin and Republican candidate Dan Murphy will be postponed to a time to be determined.
Citing a serious health emergency in her family, Cronin announced that she would not be attending the event.
"Claire Cronin will be unable to participate in tomorrow’s debate due to a serious health emergency in her family," campaign spokesperson Caroline Cruise said in a statement Monday. "She appreciates your thoughts and prayers at this time."
Cruise said Cronin tentatively plans to attend a forum Monday night held in front of a live audience and hosted by the Brockton Interfaith Community.
The 11th Plymouth District is made up of Precincts 1-5 in Easton and all of Ward 1, Ward 3-D, Ward 7-C and 7-D in Brockton. Both Murphy and Cronin are residents of Easton.
