With the line-up for the 6th Worcester District special election race now clear, people throughout the district are turning their sights on learning what each candidate stands for.

At least two efforts are in the works to set up local cable-broadcast forums in Charlton and Southbridge, this paper will profile each of the candidates, most of them have one or more campaign websites, and they'll almost certainly be pounding the pavement in various neighborhoods and waving from street corners.

According to John Gatti, of the "Eye on Southbridge" team, his group has tentatively booked the Southbridge Town Hall's council chamber for a May 1 general election forum.

"We're ready and willing to do it, but all parties must agree," he said, noting he's so far had mostly "indirect communication" with the candidates.

"We're looking at the possibility of doing it with other cable systems," and ultimately would like to see a cooperative effort by various media outlets in southern Worcester County when it comes to future elections, he said.
