Tashjian to hold campaign kickoff event Monday

Jul. 7—GEORGETOWN — Libertarian congressional candidate Mark Tashjian will host a campaign kickoff celebration Monday at the Boston Polo Club.

Tashjian is running for the 6th Congressional District of Massachusetts seat, now occupied by U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Salem, to give voters a reason to go to the polls in November, said his campaign manager Jeff Lyons in a prepared statement.

"For too long, the Republicans and Democrats have each hardened into their camps, making every issue all or nothing, right or left. But the far left and the far right aren't where the American people are," he said.

Tashjian is expected to deliver a short speech during the 6 p.m. event at the Boston Polo Club, 240 Andover St.
