There’s been some discussion and speculation about this on other threads. But here’s the details about the two political action committees have formed in support of different slates of candidates for Newton City Council. 

Newton Democracy Political Action Committee was formed in March by Lisa Gordon who is a candidate for the Ward 6 city council seat.  Lisa has since stepped down and Simon French is the chair.

In response, last week Voters for a Vibrant Newton PAC formed to support its own slate, with Allison Sharma as chair.  Here’s the press release VVN issued today.

There are other groups out there that are promoting slates, but these are the only two organizations that I could find that have registered their political action committees with the state as required by law.
