Local Races To Watch: Norfolk County Sheriff

So much attention and air-time is being given to the presidential, senatorial and U.S. Representative campaigns. Welcome to the 2020 Election Year, right? With the pandemic restricting campaign stops, and shortening the campaign season, it seems to be really intense at the moment. Of course, those three races are not the only ones on the ballot. Even for the Massachusetts September 1 primary, there are a number of candidates down-ballot that are seeking your vote. The League of Women voters has been busy arranging a number of debates to help introduce you to these people, to help you learn of their positions on issues, and help you make wise decisions when the poll is taken. Municipal reporter Yuxiao Yuan looks at the LWV’s first forum for the Norfolk County Sheriff, which was held for the Democrats seeking to unseat Republican appointee, Sheriff Jerry McDermott.
