Driscoll seeks to unseat Shannon; Blais to Run Again in Seven…

A reliable source has confirmed that Carina Driscoll, former state legislator and Progressive city councilor from Ward Three will be seeking to wrest the Democratic nomination for Ward Five city council from incumbent councilor, and possible mayoral candidate Joan Shannon.

There is speculation about whether Discoll is abandoning the Progressive party entirely, or whether she will seek to be a fusion candidate running under a duel Prog/Dem banner.  There is also speculation about whether she will actually attend the Democratic caucus, personally- or simply be nominated by someone else in absentia.

Developing Story…

Also- In other News, a source confirms Ellie Blais, former Ward Seven city councilor will seek to unseat incumbent Republican councilor Vince Dober in the March election. No word yet on her intended party label.

Good gosh golly, if Ellie enters and Vince decides to run again a guy named Greg has also announced his intentions months ago to run so a three way race again appears on the horizon in the battle zone of ward 7. Not a bad thing the more the merrier, at least ward 7 CARES.. Lets get ready to debate, Ding Ding.

Vince told me he was running again a couple of months ago, so I’d imagine he is. I can’t think of anyone in Ward 7 who could beat Dober this year. Maybe Bernie Sanders could squeak it out over him with superior name recognition and a huge infusion of campaign cash, but it’s hard to imagine why Sanders would want to run for city council at this point in his career. Who’s this Greg person? Jenkins who ran against Paul last time?

Haik, I do believe Gregg Jenkins will be running as a D and Ellie as an I. This is the latest that I have heard. Happy to see you are posting more than you have in the past!
