Two New Bedford residents pulled nomination papers for Ward 2 New Bedford City Council since they became available on Monday.
Carlos Pimentel Felix and Edwin Cartagena are recognizable names. Carlos has run for at-Large City Council in the past and currently runs New Bedford Live on Facebook. He’s a community activist that spotlights the crime in New Bedford through video journalism.
Edwin co-founded United New Bedford with his wife, which according to his website is “a coalition formed of community volunteers, local organizations, businesses, and churches together believing in bringing people together to be the difference.”
Current ward 2 City Councilor Steven Martins is popular in Ward 2, but it is widely known he is likely to vacate the seat to run for City Assessor.
