| Newton MA News and Politics BlogI’ve never been involved with Newton’s Democratic City Committee but for as long as I can remember Martina Jackson has been the person in charge.*   But now comes word that current vice chair Shawn Fitzgibbons, in photo right, is campaigning for the job, while Hannah Banks, on left, is looking to be vice chair. Given the important elections coming up this year and the perception that the Newton Dems are pretty insular, this seems like a positive development.

* UPDATE:  Jackson has been chair since 2002.
