Marathon Victims Pushed to Meet One Fund Boston June 15 Deadline

One Fund Boston administrator Kenneth Feinberger is urging Boston Marathon bombing victims to get claims in before the June 15 deadine. “You would be amazed at how people in grief, with all sorts of uncertainty about their lives, don’t file. File at the last minute. File claim forms written in crayon,”Feinberg told the Boston Herald. Funds are scheduled to start being distributed on June 30, with the three families who lost a loved one to receive around $ 1 million.  Next, those who suffered double amputations or more would receive funds, then single amputees, then those who required an overnight hospital stay. The final protocol for dispersing funds can be viewed on the One Fund site. Downloadable claim forms are available through the One Fund Boston website. Victims can read and download a Frequently Asked Questions section about One Fund Boston for filing claims. Help with completing One Fund forms is available by calling 866-298-2951 or going to the One Fund Boston website.  SOUTH END PATCH: Facebook | Twitter | E-mail Updates South End Patch

GOP Candidates Meet Face to Face, Dems Ready to Debate

Over the past week, Republican candidates in the race for U.S. Senate met face to face for the first time to talk issues and make themselves known in the race for U.S. Senate, while their Democratic counterparts launched their first TV ads. State Rep. Dan Winslow of Norfolk, former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan and former Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez took part in the first GOP debate last Tuesday night at Stonehill College in Easton. In the hour-long debate, the candidates discussed a wide-range of issues including: Roe vs. Wade, gun control, immigration, social security and issues affecting the economy. Unlike their Democratic counterparts, the three candidates disagreed on little, with a common theme centered on the need to fix the dysfunctionality in Washington. Democratic debates on tap While a full debate schedule has yet to be agreed upon – the candidates are set for their first and last debates before the April 30 primary. Markey and Lynch are set to debate for the first time on March 27 at the WCVB-TV studios in Needham at 7 p.m. The last debate before the primary will be April 22 at the WBZ-TV studios, in conjunction with the Boston Globe and with moderator John Keller, also at  7 p.m. Also in the news over the past week: Lynch, Markey launch TV ads Both Democratic candidates launched their television ad campaign. Markey focused on his support for gun control, while Lynch used his first ad to introduce himself to voters not familiar with the seven-term congressman from South Boston, reported CBS Boston. Gomez resigns from job to focus on campaign The Boston Globe recently reported Gomez resigned from his position as a principal at Advent International to pursue his campaign for U.S. Senate. A company spokesman told the Globe he resigned on March 2. Rhyne joins race as write-in candidate Brett Rhyne, former editor of the Medfield Press, is running for Senate. The Needham resident announced last week via his website Rhyne4Senate.com that he is running as a Write-In candidate for U.S. Senate.
