Lots of excitement leading up to the Democratic State Primary on September 6th!

Although our State Senator Will Brownsberger is running unopposed, there are four candidates vying for the Democratic Nomination for State Representative, 24th Middlesex District.  Voters will also have the opportunity to choose between Elizabeth Warren and Marisa DeFranco for nomination for US Senator.

Our State Rep seat has been open since January, when then-Rep. Brownsberger was chosen in a special election to fill the State Senator seat vacated by Steve Tolman last Fall.  The first to state his intention to run for the nomination was Bobby Reardon of Belmont, who announced his candidacy at the Belmont Caucus in February.  Dave Rogers of Cambridge entered the race in April, followed by Margaret Hegarty of Belmont and Sue Sheffler of Arlington.

The 24th Middlesex District includes all of Belmont, two precincts in Cambridge, and five precincts in Arlington.
