Stevens: Mayor's seat is perfectly comfortable, thanks

Posted by Ralph Ranalli February 25, 2008 07:54 AM


Mayor Nancy Stevens announced this week that she will not run for state representative or state senator, two posts that will soon be open.

State Sen. Pam Resor, an Acton Democrat, recently announced her retirement at the end of this term. State Rep. Stephen LeDuc, a Marlborough Democrat, is resigning his Beacon Hill seat to take a job as assistant clerk magistrate at the Marlborough District Court.

I truly love what I do as mayor," said Stevens. "I do not want the residents of Marlborough to assume that my having even considered the possible opportunities was reflective of the job as mayor or my commitment to the community. I considered the potential options only to evaluate if I could better serve the residents of the city in another capacity.
