As of today, I'm planning on running for re-election as Ward 4 Councillor. But with the possibility of a vacancy in the Mayor's office and the impact that might have on all the races, I am interested in keeping my options open.
On Tuesday May 26, I pulled nomination papers for three offices: Ward 4 Councillor, Councillor-At-Large, and Mayor.
Signatures need to be submitted at the end of July, so I'll make a decision as we get closer to that time.
I hope more candidates step up to run for all the races--Mayor, Council At-Large and Ward, and School Committee--as well as get involved in the on-going Charter Review effort. More involvement in the political process is going to make our community stronger.
