Because Rep. Peter Buckley of Ashland had already announced his retirement from the House. 

Buckley had a huge impact beyond the district, as the chief budget-writer in the House. 

Pam Marsh of Ashland is the Democrat running to succeed Buckley.  Steve Richie is the Republican running (after Alan DeBoer opted to run for Senate instead). 

We invited both candidates to join us to lay out their visions.
