Gettin’ While the Gettin’s Good
At least three of Tiverton’s seven Town Council members won’t be seeking re-election in the fall, and one of them, John Edwards, is “seriously considering” running for the state representative seat that is expected to be vacated by District 70 Rep. Joseph N. Amaral, R-Tiverton.
“I’m going to seek a seat on the state level so I can continue to serve the residents of Tiverton,” Edwards said.
Although citizens might not know it because Tiverton’s local elections are (ahem) “non-partisan,” Edwards is a Democrat.
An overwhelmingly busy and unwealthy blogger can only hope that some of the several hundred people who voted against the budget “compromise” and stormed out of the high school gymnasium last week will run for the open slots.
