State Senate debate Monday night in Lowell

I just heard that this coming Monday night (August 16) at 7 pm at Lowell High School’s Little Theater, First Middlesex State Senate Democratic candidates Chris Doherty and Eileen Donoghue will face off in a debate sponsored by local radio station WCAP. With only four weeks to go to the primary, this debate will be huge.

In a related note, a flyer from Doherty arrived in today’s mail. Printed on 8.5 x 11 inch glossy paper, the piece contains three photos of the candidate in courtroom settings, and three repeats of the slogan “A Prosecutor, Not a Politician” – a clear, concise message; the same one used by Tom Reilly in his successful 1990 campaign for Middlesex District Attorney against then State Senator Joe Mackey of Somerville.

    I got that Doherty flyer yesterday too. I always find the “I am a (insert profession here), not a politician.” campaign tactic amusing; I wouldn’t hire a banker to run an after-school program so why would I “hire” a prosecutor (or teacher, or banker, or plumber or whatever) to govern? I know I’m in the minority but that tactic always makes me think twice about a candidate, and not in a positive way.
