Local Democrats will be celebrating on North Main Street this afternoon with the opening of congressional candidate Joseph Kennedy III's Attleboro campaign office. A small gathering with refreshments is planned. The event is open to the public.
Kennedy, a 31-year-old attorney who currently calls Brookline home, is seeking the congressional seat representing the 4th District, which includes Attleboro and Seekonk. He is the heavy favorite for the Sept. 6 primary election, which will also include engineer Herb Robinson and Lyndon LaRouche supporter Rachel Brown.
In the November general election, Kennedy is expected to face Sean Bielat. The Republican ran against Rep. Barney Frank in a similar district (redistricting has created some adjustments) two years ago, giving Frank his most competitive election since the outgoing congressman first ran for the seat in 1980.
The office opening will take place from 3 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. Kennedy is expected to be in attendance. The office is located at 7 North Main St., Suite 215A.
