Kennedy to Open Attleboro Campaign Office

The Democrat seeking to become Attleboro and Seekonk's representative in the U.S. House of Representatives will host an office opening event this afternoon.

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.

deb your last message doesn't balance with previous posts but like you our personal debates are moot but such generalizing hardly meets with the reasoning and thoughtful true independents reflect - un-enrolled is just a way to hide a designation or keep it personal which is fine but I think it's important not to pretend or feign independence when it is obviously not true...a lot of people who used to be GOP now run to Libertarian or Conservative while again having no clue or understanding of what that means.,,,,,like saying one is "anti-women's rights' but declaring a Libertarian status.....again the views of an Ayn Rand cannot balance with the teachings of Jesus - grandstanding of one's religion is what got the Pharisees a dishonerable mention with Jesus - who also could never have spoken on issues of women's rights (especially abortion) - just tidying up some ideological bs used earlier.

Pro-Choice/Pro-Woman and PROUD of it. If men got pregnant, then abortion (esp.) in the Roman Catholic Church would be a Sacrament.

Here is another school of thought, Gretchen. If men had the pill, there would be no more children.

Kennedys come from a long line of public service, it's what they do. When you grow up in it, it's what you know. My plumber comes from a family of plumbers what's wrong with that? My doctors brother is also a doctor, what's that got to do with politics? Pastor Bailey wants to be a politician, I don't get that.

Paul: I guess you do not consider ministering and educating a public service? I wholeheartedly disagree. Now, if you had written "Kennedy's come from a long line of POLITICIAN'S" and Pastor Bailey wants to be one, I think most of us would agree. And we probably would not get it either. But I am willing to listen.
