From Leominster Champion
Candidate for State Senate Susan Chalifoux Zephir has announced that upon election to the Senate, she would no longer serve as a Leominster City Councilor at Large.
“I am in this race 100 percent because this election is a critical opportunity to help local families in our part of the state,” Chalifoux Zephir said. “We need to shake things up if we’re going to provide more state aid for our schools, attract good paying jobs, and get control of skyrocketing health care costs that are hurting our seniors.”
The deadline to finalize the Leominster City Council ballot had already passed when Sen. Jen Flanagan announced she was stepping down and the Nov. 7 special primary election was scheduled. As a result, Chalifoux Zephir’s name will appear on the Nov. 7 ballot in Leominster as both a candidate for state Senate and a candidate for City Councilor at Large.
“If I am fortunate enough to be elected to the State Senate, I pledge not to serve on the City Council,” Chalifoux Zephir said. “I hope my fellow candidates will join me in pledging not to serve in two elected offices at the same time.”
