BOSTON (AP) – The four candidates for Massachusetts governor are scheduled to meet with religious leaders from across greater Boston to discuss religious tolerance and the concerns of working families.
The event is being held Sunday evening at Temple Israel of Boston in the Longwood section of the city. The forum is sponsored by the Greater Boston Interfaith Organization.
Organizers say they want to press the four candidates – Republican Charles Baker, Democratic incumbent Deval Patrick, independent Timothy Cahill and Green-Rainbow candidate Jill Stein – on everything from respect for all religious faith to exorbitant interest rates charged by banks.
The faith leaders also say they’ll ask the candidates for their plans to improve urban schools, including those in minority communities.
Independent Timothy Cahill has filed a lawsuit against former operatives who recently defected from his campaign,saying they conspired with local and national Republicans to undermine his candidacy for Massachusetts governor.
The text of the lawsuit was not immediately available, but in a statement Thursday, Cahill said former members of his staff “intended to use confidential information they obtained” whileworking for him to benefit Republican rival Charles Baker.
The lawsuit comes less than a week after Cahill’s running mate,Paul Loscocco, quit and endorsed Baker. He said Cahill could no longer win and is filling a spoiler’s role that allow Democratic Gov. Deval Patrick to gain a second term.
Senior adviser John Weaver and campaign manager Adam Meldrum resigned a week before Loscocco, making the same claim.
All three formerly worked on the presidential campaigns of Sen.John McCain.
Baker says he hasn’t seen the lawsuit. His campaign issued astatement calling on Cahill “to come clean about improperactivities in his campaign.”
