Greater Newburyport women launch political caucus committee
By Jack Shea, Newburyport News (Excerpts)
A group of local women has formed a Greater Newburyport committee for the Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus, aiming to further the organization’s goal of increasing female civic engagement and getting more women elected to public office.
Recently, the Greater Newburyport committee led an effort to endorse four Essex County candidates for state representative: Jennifer Rocco-Runnion (1st Essex), Christina Eckert (2nd Essex), Allison Gustavson (4th Essex), and Tram T. Nguyen (18th Essex).
And now, the committee is giving residents a chance to meet the four candidates at its official launch Oct. 3 at 7 p.m. at Paula Estey Gallery, 3 Harris St.
