And now there are four candidates running for mayor of Newton this fall

Rich Saunders, a self-declared “long-shot candidate,” was among the group of candidates in attendance at the Newton League of Women Voters “Don’t Just Stand There…Run!” event last night.  Rich said he wasn’t quite ready to formally announce yet, but he’s built a website, posted his bio and his philosophy

Saunders, who is originally from Methuen, becomes the first non-city councilor to enter the contest. Scott Lennon, Ruthanne Fuller and Amy Sangiolo are all actively campaigning.
