Democratic US Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren has confirmed she will be at the revitalized Truman Rally in West Roxbury on the eve of Election Day.
Her opponent, Republican US Senator Scott Brown has not confirmed whether he will attend the nonpartisan political rally starting at 7 p.m. But organizers are hopeful he will confirm his participating in the nonpartisan rally.
The Truman Rally was rebooted last year, after being on hiatus for several years from the Parkway political scene. From 1981 until 2006 the Truman Rally was a well-loved neighborhood tradition. he event was considered, and now looks to be once again - a vital stop on the campaign trail for candidates due to the hundreds of supporters, spectators, and would-be voters. Any candidate on the ballot, no matter what political party or no party, is invited to give - essentially a stump speech.
Congressman Stephen Lynch, D-9th, is also scheduled to speak, who is opposed by Republican candidate Joe Selvaggi, who has not confirmed his attendance.
Both candidates for the Governor's Council District 2 race are also scheduled to speak:
Boston City Councilor Matt O'Malley and state Rep. Ed Coppinger, D-West Roxbury, led the resurrection with the Truman Society to restart the rally last year. Both the Democratic and Republican Ward 20 committees have also worked on the rally together.
This year's rally is taking place in the Hastings Street municipal lot at the corner of Hastings and Centre streets from 7 to 9 p.m. on Monday night.
Along with Warren, O'Malley and the unopposed Coppinger will also speak: Republican Earl Sholley, and Democrat Robert Jubinville.
