Murphy, Cronin to Square off in Easton Debate for State Rep.

The two candidates for the 11th Plymouth District will square off on ECAT later this month.

On Nov. 6, Obama vs. Romney won't be the only important choice on your ballot. For most voters in Easton, they'll be faced with a choice between Dan Murphy and Claire Cronin.

Cronin, who won a competitive Democratic Primary last month, will face Republican Murphy, an Easton Selectman, to decide who will represent the 11th Plymouth District in the Massachusetts House of Representatives.

You'll have a clearer look at the two candidates Oct. 23

On that day, the two candidates will square off in a live debate on  Easton Community Access Television (Comcast Channel 9 and Verizon FIOS 22) beginning at 7 p.m. It will re-air on Patch and ECAT's website in the following days.

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.

The debate is co-sponsored by ECAT, Easton Patch and the Easton Journal. Easton Patch Editor Patrick Maguire and Easton Journal Editor Donna Whitehead will co-moderate the debate. Topics will include Easton jobs, the Southcoast Rail, local education, Easton development, and much more.
