Four Democrats and an Independent vying for Carl Sciortino’s former 34th Middlesex District seat in the Massachusetts House will square off at 7 p.m. Sunday, June 29, in a candidates’ forum at Tufts University.

The forum is in Tufts’ Barnum Hall, Room 008, 163 Packard Ave., Medford.

The candidates are:

The 34th Middlesex District covers wards 4 and 5, precinct 1 of ward 7 and precinct 2 of ward 8 in Medford, as well as wards 4 and 7 in Somerville.

After nine years in office, Sciortino resigned from the seat in April to become the executive director of AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts.

The primary is Tuesday, Sept. 9.

Medford for Massachusetts, Progressive Democrats of Somerville and Cambridge-Somerville for CHANGE are sponsoring the forum.
