The city’s highly-anticipated primary election is set for this Tuesday, September 21.
Headlining the primary election will be the three-way battle for mayor among incumbent Mayor Carlo DeMaria, City Councilor-at-Large Gerly Adrien, and Ward 1 City Councilor Fred Capone.
Although the recent debate among the candidates revealed relatively few points of disagreement on the major issues facing our city, there are discernible differences in their leadership style, backgrounds, and experience.
We urge all of our readers to read up on the candidates and to examine their various approaches to the problems facing our city in order to make an informed decision. The top two vote-getters will proceed to the final election in November.
In addition to the mayor’s race, there will be primary contests for City Council-at-Large, School Committee-at-Large, Ward 4 City Council, and Ward 6 School Committee.
All voters should go to the Election Commission website in order to determine their polling location.
We urge all of our readers to get out to vote in the primary election this coming Tuesday, September 21. Voting is the best way for every citizen in our community to make a difference.
