State Senate candidate Jason Lewis will be opening his campaign headquarters in Malden Center on Saturday morning, according to a press statement.
Lewis, a Democrat from Winchester, will be joined by supporters and local activists at the opening of his new headquarters, located on the fourth floor at 422 Main St. in Malden, at 10:30 a.m. Jan. 11.
Among the activities planned for the event are a brief question-and-answer session, followed by canvassing and phone banking in the afternoon. Light refreshments will also be served.
Lewis, who is taking over the former Katherine Clark for Congress office in Malden, is vying for the vacant 5th Middlesex Senate District seat left by Clark.
Clark, a Democrat from Melrose, defeated Republican challenger Frank Addivinola Jr. for the 5th Congressional District seat left vacant by former Congressman Edward Markey, who was elected as a U.S. Senator in 2013.
The state primary is set for March 4, and the special state election is slated for April 1, according to the Secretary of State
