Summer is coming to a close and its time again to start getting ready for the fall election season here in Worcester. Worcester Film Works sent out the following invite to all 2011 Worcester City Council and School Committee candidates last week inviting them to come out and meet with voters prior to the showing of Spaceballs on August 25, 2011:
Calling all candidates,
We would like to invite you to Worcester Film Work’s final installment of Movies on the Commons for 2011. This is wonderful opportunity to meet your constituents shake hands and kiss babies! We recommend that you plan to attend between 6pm and 8pm when it will still be light out and you will have a chance to talk to the hundreds of people we are expecting (based on previous attendance numbers). A representative from the Coalition for Educated Options will be present to register more people on the voting rolls. We are informing people via our website that we have invited all candidates, and you want to confirm with us we will also include those of you who plan to attend.
The date is Thursday, August 25, and entertainment will start at 6pm with live music by Worcester’s acclaimed pop band Hey Now Morris Fader, and at dusk the film will begin. We will be showing Mel Brooks’ “Spaceballs” after a short cartoon. WXLO will also be present to give away gifts and say a few words about our sponsors.
Worcester Film Works is a non profit venture aimed at increasing foot traffic downtown, promoting local businesses and providing a safe and pleasurable forum in which the community can congregate. We have had success in our inaugural season with showings of “Grease” and “Back to the Future” and hope to continue expanding our offerings and audience for the 2012 season. We have received generous support from local businesses and foundations.
We hope you can make it!
Jim McKeag and Eric Kuczarski

If we receive confirmation directly from the candidates that they do indeed plan to attend, we will let you know.
Not registered to vote? We'll help you out there too. Representatives from The Initiative for Engaged Citizenship will be on hand to help you register to vote this fall.
