Ninth Congressional Seat Debate
The two Democratic candidates for the 9th Congressional seat debated the issues Thursday night on a Marshfield radio station. Rep. William Keating and Bristol County District Attorney Sam Sutter sparred over fishing quotas, Cape Wind and more.
On Cape Wind, a proposed wind farm on Nantucket Sound, Keating accused Sutter of having opposed the Nantucket location and the Cape Wind project. In response, Sutter said that the project was a good idea, but in the wrong location. They disagreed on direct support for commercial fishemen with Sutter saying Keating has done nothing to help fisherman while Keating shot back with a quote from current Congreesman Barney Frank that Sutter doesn’t know what he’s talking about. The pair will confront each other again at an Aug. 30 debate at UMass Dartmouth which you’ll be able to hear on WBSM.
