In what looks like a compromise on the part of the Lowell Sun, it was announced today that Jim Ogonowski will appear on the Sun’s NewsTalk Live program this Thursday after all.
They have moved their program back an hour to 6:00 pm so that Jim can also make his 7:00 pm commitment with us at Dracut Local Access’s Open Forum program.

GOP’s Tierney, Ogonowski to meet on NewsTalk Live
Republican candidates in the 5th Congressional District race will be in the spotlight during a special early edition of NewsTalk Live on Thursday night. The show, featuring Tom Tierney of Framingham and Jim Ogonowski of Dracut, will begin at 6 p.m. and run for an hour.
Sun Editor Jim Campanini will moderate the show. Callers are invited to participate with questions for the candidates by dialing 978-364-8255. Due to a prior commitment on local cable television, Ogonowski will be in studio for 30 minutes. Listeners are urged to call in early to talk to the candidate.
This joint interview between Tierney and Ogonowski should end the ongoing babble regarding Ogonowski’s not participating in events with Tierney. I think it was good of the Sun to make this happen.
As we did with the other top candidates that we have interviewed on Open Forum, we will question Ogonowski on all the general issues in the campaign in an open discussion.
Feel free to send in any questions you may like to have asked via the Contact form on the Dracut Forum, and I will try to get the interview clipped up and available via YouTube over the weekend as we did with the others.
