maydayI still haven’t decided if I will join the throng of Newton politicians and wannabes who will flock to the Election Department at Newton City Hall on Wednesday to pull papers to run for Mayor, Alderman, School Committee, Area Council or other public office.

But I’m thinking about it.

How about you? Are you running for reelection or planning on becoming a first time candidate¬† this fall? If so, declare your intentions here.¬† Tell us why you’re running. Or, conversely, why you’re not.

Or else tell us who you’d like to see run or who you hope will face a challenger.

(And by the way, if you think you can pull papers and make an announcement some other time forget about it.  Once you pull papers, folks are going to know and talk about you so you might as well control the news and make the announcement yourself.)
