Republican candidate Greg Bunn, who is seeking to represent Peabody asState Rep in an open seat for the 12th Essex District has accepted an invitation to appear next Wednesday, Feb. 20th, on the “You Make The Call” show, 8-9 p.m., on Peabody Access Telecommunications Channel 99.

During the hour, co-hosts Dick Jarvis and Bob Croce will interview Bunn, and take calls from viewers. Bunn’s opponent in the March 5th Republican Primary for the seat, Leah Cole, was also invited, but turned down the invitation to speak with the voters who watch the show, because of a “campaign event conflict.”

“You Make The Call” plans to hold another forum in advance of the April 2nd final election, where Democratic candidate Beverley Griffin Dunne and independent candidate David Gravel will be invited to appear along with the winner of the March 5th Republican Primary.

 Here are more details in the Patch.
