CHARLTON - The first opportunity for voters to hear a debate between candidates for state representative for the 6th Worcester will be in Charlton on Tuesday, October 9, at the Overlook Performing Arts Center at 88 Masonic Home Road.
Incumbent Peter J. Durant (R-Spencer) is being challenged by Democrat Kathleen Walker, who is a member of the Charlton Board of Selectmen.
The event will start at 7 p.m. with a reception, questions begin at 7:30 p.m. and are expected to last about one hour.
Ms. Walker has requested a debate take place in all four towns in the district, which includes Southbridge, Dudley, and precincts in Charlton and Spencer.

There are tentative plans for an event in Southbridge on October 17, while Spencer has yet to be determined.
