Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse Campaign holds event two days before debate

Hampden County

HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse’s Campaign is held an event Saturday morning in Holyoke, just two days before he faces Congressman Neal on the debate stage.

Mayor Morse was not in attendance but he had gone to two other campaign events this weekend. The purpose for the event is to build support for Morse’s candidacy against Richard E. Neal for his congressional seat.

According to the Morse campaign, the event was a community canvassing. Supporters gathered along Northampton Street and Beech Street in support of Morse.

“As a nurse, I’m supporting Mayor Morse because he’s been very clear about wanting to expand health care for all, Medicare for all. And it’s been absolutely clear that he recognizes the need in the United States,” Patty Healey, a registered nurse, told 22News.

The election for the congressional seat takes place on Tuesday, September 1.
