To date, only one school committee incumbent in Fall River has taken out nomination papers for re-election. Joe Martins of 578 Lawton Street, took out papers Tuesday, May 9th. So far, his contenders include candidate Sean Connell, of 219 Purchase Street; Miriam Morales, 132 New Boston Road; and Jessica Wong, of 377 N. Underwood Street.
Earlier this spring, School Committee Member Gabriel Andrade told FRC Media News that he would not seek re-election due to family issues. He also stated that was the only reason, adding he feels confident in the work being done by School Superintendent Matt Malone.
Since a last check of contenders for the Office of Mayor or City Council there were no other candidates who pulled nomination papers since they were made available on April 25th.
FRC Media News will have complete election coverage as the information unfolds.
