Lia, a Republican activist and the daughter of Newton activist Dan Fahey, joins declared candidates Emily Norton and Jack Leader in a contest to replace Alderman Steve Linsky, who has decided not to seek reelection.

If all three candidates submit their papers and stay in the contest, we will have a run-off election in September to determine the final two candidates for November.

Along with the at-large-contest in Ward 5 between incumbents Brian Yates and Deb Crosley and challenger Chris Steele, this could be the other really interesting race to watch this fall.

All three Ward 2 candidates bring something new to the table and potentially address this question, which I asked back in January.
