WORTHINGTON – The Town Democratic Committee’s Sundays with the Candidates series will host Sen. Eric Lesser, D-Longmeadow, this Sunday, who is running for the Democratic nomination for lieutenant governor.

The series takes place over Zoom, and Lesser’s forum will start at 2 p.m. Those interested in attending the forum can email Worthingtondem@gmail.com with one’s name and community to receive the Zoom link. The event will be open to all attendees, regardless of residence.

Past Sundays With the Candidates events have featured Harvard professor Danielle Allen and state Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz, D-Boston, both of whom are seeking the Democratic nomination for governor. Former gubernatorial candidate Ben Downing has also appeared, as has state Rep. Paul Mark, D-Peru, who is running for state Senate.

Lesser will be the first lieutenant governor candidate to appear at the series, but he won’t be the last. Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll and state Sen Adam Hinds, D-Pittsfield, are both running for the position and both are now on the Sundays With the Candidates schedule.

Driscoll’s appearance at the series has been set for Feb. 6 at 2 p.m., while Hinds is set to appear on Jan. 20 at 2 p.m.
