LeDuc stepping down

Posted by Ralph Ranalli February 20, 2008 12:46 PM



State Rep. Stephen P. LeDuc, a Marlborough Democrat, has announced that he is resigning his Beacon Hill seat to take a job as assistant clerk magistrate for the Marlborough District Court.

LeDuc, 39, has been a state representative for 11 years in a district that now consists of Marlborough, Berlin, and part of Southborough. He was first elected at the age of 21 to the Marlborough City Council, on which he served six years.

LeDuc had said earlier this month that he was considering a senate run to fill the seat that will be vacated by state Sen. Pam Resor, who just announced her retirement. Two other candidates have announced their intentions to run for the senate seat: State Rep. Jamie Eldridge, an Acton Democrat, and Marlborough City Councilor Steven Levy, a Republican.

Marlborough Mayor Nancy Stevens, a Democrat, has also said she is considering a run for Resor's seat.
