CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – 22News is working for you by hosting a series of debates and forums to help you make informed decisions on Election Day.
Jay McMahon, who is the Republican candidate for Attorney General, was asked questions on a range of topics from abortion rights to whether prosecutors should refuse to pursue charges in certain low-level crimes, such as disorderly conduct and drug possession.
“If you discourage the police from making certain arrests, then there’s no statistics for those crimes. I will see to it that quality of life crimes are prosecuted, so we have peace and security in our downtowns,” said McMahon.
- FORUM: Massachusetts 1st Congressional District with candidate Dean Martilli
- DEBATE: Massachusetts 2nd Congressional District, McGovern and Sossa-Paquette
- DEBATE: Massachusetts Ballot Question 1, additional 4% tax on income over $1 million
- DEBATE: Massachusetts Ballot Question 4, driver’s license eligibility for undocumented immigrants
22News did invite McMahon’s Democratic opponent, Andrea Campbell, to participate in a debate but campaign communications director Molly McGlynn said “due to a few schedule conflicts, we’re unable to make a debate work before Election Day.”
