10 people who should run for mayor of New Bedford in 2017


The mayor, or chief executive of the City, wields a lot of power. He or she appoints the chief of police, has major influence on the discretionary part of the $300 million city budget and has full veto power of the city council. The mayor also appoints most of the city leadership and is the head of the school committee.

While a few people have pulled nomination papers with the intent to run for mayor, only Charlie Perry and Kerry Winterson seem to be serious about a run. At the time of this writing, I’d say Kerry Winterson is not likely to run for office. Candidates have until August 15, 2017 to run in the October and November elections this year.
