Welcome to the official start of the 2017 municipal election season.
Today is the first day that candidates can pull papers to run for mayor, city council, school committee and area council. Every job is open and awaiting your candidacy. If you’re running, introduce yourself here. If you have a favorite candidate early on tell us about him or her too.
UPDATE: According to this tweet from Gloria Gavris, five candidates pulled papers for mayor as of 4:50 p.m. today: Three that we knew about –Ruthanne Fuller, Amy Sangiolo and Richard Saunders — plus two new additions: Al Cecchinelli’ and Geoffrey Woodward. We assume Scott Lennon will stop by City Hall soon as well.
