DOT OUT event in Dorchester tonight--all 4 candidates are scheduled to attend

Thanks to DOT OUT for sponsoring this event:

Hello -

This is just a reminder e-mail about the DotOut event tomorrow (Monday) night at 6:00 p.m. at the Ledge at 2261 Dorchester Avenue in the Lower Mills neighborhood of Dorchester. It looks like all four mayoral candidates have committed to attend.

We will have a casual meet and greet with members and candidates from 6:00-6:45. At that point, we will do introductions from DotOut and then turn the event over to Bay Windows co-publisher and Editor in Chief Sue O'Connell. She will call upon each mayoral candidate in the order that their names appear on the preliminary election ballot (McCrea, Yoon, Flaherty,Menino). Each candidate will then be invited to give a five minute presentation and then take questions for 5 minutes. After that candidate gives his presentation and then takes Q&A, we will move to the next candidate.

In order to receive an endorsement, a candidate must receive 2/3 of the vote of those present and voting. If no candidate receives 2/3, we can proceed to a second vote. In order to be considered for the second round, a candidate must have received at least 15% of the vote in the first round. If no candidates receives 2/3 of the vote in the second round, we can proceed to a third round. A candidate must have received at least 20% of the vote to be considered during the third round. If no candidate receives 2/3 of the vote by the third round, then no endorsement will be made.

We are looking forward to hearing from you tomorrow night. If you have any questions, please dont hesitate to contact me tomorrow on my cell

Thank you and good luck.

Dave Breen
