After sitting out the last mayor’s race, Alderman Paul Coletti said he is likely to throw in his hat for the next one.
“I have a funny feeling the city’s going to be just in the right position for a leadership change,” the Ward 5 at-large aldermen said. “Hopefully, all the stars will be aligned.”
A run for mayor would probably mean stepping down from his chairmanship of the Finance Committee, he said.
“After all these years, maybe somebody else wants to do it for a while,” he said.
Coletti is the second longest-serving alderman and has been a perennial critic of Mayor David B. Cohen, most recently on his handling of the new Newton North High School project.
