In the first 24 hours where nomination papers became available, four New Bedford residents pulled nomination papers from the elections office at the New Bedford City Hall. That number has grown to nine.
Nomination papers became available on Monday, May 22nd and since then Paul Chasse, Scott Lima, Michael Augusto, Joseph Andrade, David Sullivan. Nelson Macedo, Paul C. G. Noversa, Jacquelina Pina and Len Roberts have pulled papers and indicated Ward 5 as their choice.
We’ll provide more details on each should they officially become candidates. Each still needs to submit 50 valid signatures to the election office.
Current Ward 5 Councilor Kerry Winterson was popular and liked by many, but due to his wife’s health and personal reasons, announced in February that he would not seek re-election in October.
