Steve Ultrino announced this week his intention to run for the Malden City Council
to fill the seat left vacant in Ward 2 by Paul Condon, who announced
recently that he will not seek reelection, according to statement.
Ultrino has served on the Malden School Committee since 2004 representing Ward 2, and is the Director of Education at the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office, where he oversees educational programming, according to the statement.
In the announcement, Ultrino said his educational and management credentials give him unique insight into the challenges facing Malden, applauding the city’s schools and its business community, according to the release.
“It is essential that elected officials listen carefully to the experiences of our residents and business owners. They often have the best ideas about how to meet a challenge or solve a problem, and they can give us valuable feedback about what the city does well,” he said in the statement.
Ultrino will run against Gene Pinkham, another long-time community activist from the ward.
