PHOTO OF THE DAY: Slippery Slope of Political Campaigning

FRAMINGHAM – On Sunday, Cameron Middle School held its annual Gauntlet. It is a 1.5-mile obstacle course.

To complete the course, one must deal with a few hurdles, walk a tightrope, go down a slippery slope, and avoid getting stuck in the mud. Sounds a bit like campaigning for political office too.

As Framingham has its first City elections in November, there were four candidates who attended yesterday’s fundraiser – at-large city council candidate Cheryl Tully Stoll, District city council candidate Mike Cannon, School Committee candidate Jim Kelly, and mayoral candidate John Stefanini.

No surprise to see candidates this year at the event. One can’t attend anything these days without seeing a candidate.

While photographing the hundreds of participants at The Gauntlet, Framingham Source challenged each of the four candidates to participate in the obstacle course, or at least to slide down the soapy hill, just like Cameron Principal Michelle Melick.

Only one of the four candidates took the challenge – Jim Kelly.

Framingham Source will have a slideshow of Gauntlet photos posted later today.
