In this fourth of a series of posts, we are highlighting specific resident questions from the recent District 1 City Council Candidates Forum hosted by the North End / Waterfront Neighborhood Council (NEWNC). The three candidates running to fill the seat being vacated by Sal LaMattina are Lydia Edwards, Margaret Farmer and Stephen Passacantilli. District 1 includes the North End, Charlestown and East Boston.
Question: Are you for or against 4:00 a.m. liquor licenses and why?
All three candidates said they were staunchly opposed to having closing hours of 4am on alcohol licenses in the district.
Hear the complete answer of each of the candidates in the above video and see the entire candidates forum in this prior post.
The preliminary municipal election will be on September 26th, 2017. The top two candidates from that election will appear on the general municipal election ballot on November 7th, 2017. Polls are open 7am-8pm. Find more information at CityofBoston.gov/elections.
