During his eight years in office, Mayor Setti Warren has rarely endorsed local candidates. And, I’ve been looking, but I don’t think he has endorsed in anyone in this fall’s contests so far…at least until this just came in from Gail Spector’s campaign for School Committee. ..

Mayor Setti Warren endorses Gail Spector for School Committee

In endorsing Gail Spector in her race for School Committee from Ward 8, Newton Mayor Setti Warren said,

“I’m proud to endorse Gail Spector for School Committee from Ward 8. Her experience as a journalist covering the Newton schools and her commitment to this city will make Gail a terrific addition to the School Committee.”

Spector, a 33-year Newton resident, said, “I am so proud to have the endorsement of Mayor Setti Warren. Because the mayor has sat as the ninth member of the School Committee for the last eight years, he understands what qualities and experience are needed to work collaboratively on the committee. I’m honored by his confidence in me.”

Spector is the mother of two Newton-educated children and a journalist who covered Newton for nearly two decades. She is a former editor of the Newton TAB.

Spector is running for the Ward 8 at-large seat. All of Newton can vote for her on Nov. 7.
