Union head says he might run for mayor


Patrick Hogan, president of the police patrolmen's union, is contemplating a run for mayor of Marlborough in 2007, saying he is upset over the way the city is run.

Hogan has been at odds with Mayor Nancy Stevens for months over police officer contract talks. The talks have stalled and a federal mediator was recently called in to help the process. Rising health care premiums appear to be a major point of contention.

For now, Hogan is headed to Brazil to get married and said he will have made a decision by the time he returns.

"I feel our best public servants are those who sacrifice a few years of their lives to make a positive difference," he wrote. "Not politicians who sell out their communities and themselves to ensure they win another election."
