Brian Gomes to run for New Bedford mayor and at-Large City Council


Current New Bedford at-Large City Councilor Brian Gomes has officially filed to run for mayor and at-Large City Council. Legally, he can run for both positions. If he wins both races, he would have to decide which position to fill and a special election would occur for the other seat.

Gomes was the top vote-getter in the 2017 New Bedford at-Large race and would likely finish in the top 5 in 2017 even while running two campaigns.

Today at 5 pm is the deadline for candidates to file officially. Steven Martins still needs to file officially.

Seven are running for mayor and twelve for at-Large city council. Candidates have until Tuesday to withdraw their filings.

  1. You neglected to mention that should Gomes win both, a required special election would cost taxpayers around $50,000. And this is from a candidate who’s running on a platform of saving taxpayer money.
