The LWV of Needham, Wellesley and Natick sponsored a Pre-Primary Candidate Forum with the Democratic candidates (Dylan Hayre and Sara-Lynn Reynolds) for the Norfolk, Bristol and Middlesex District State Senate seat currently held by Senator Richard Ross. The winner of this Democratic Primary will face Senator Ross, the candidate for the Republican Party who does not have a primary opponent. (This district includes Needham Precincts A-C, I, J.)
