With a minimum of six incumbents leaving their board seats this year (and a special election coming soon to fill the seat long held by the late Carleton Merrill), will this be the year when veteran activists who have tried multiple times to win seats on the Board of Aldermen or School Committee finally get their chance? Will we see former members return? Or will this be the year when new, first time, candidates step up?
If you’re running, feel free to toss your hat into the ring in the comment section below.
Or if you want to suggest someone who you think would do a great job as an alderman or School Committee member, feel free to urge him or her to run here too.
And, finally, are you breaking out into a cold sweat worried that the right candidates won’t step up?
