Waltham mayor racing to fill election post before fall

Posted by Ralph Ranalli August 22, 2007 04:03 PM


Mayor Jeannette McCarthy said she hopes to have a candidate to fill a vacant election commissioner's spot by the time City Council meets on September 10.

The city has four seats, one of which is filled by the city clerk. Two seats are reserved for Republicans, and two for Democrats. One of the Republican commissioners, Hope Johnson, passed away earlier this year.

McCarthy said she'll be interviewing potential replacements in the next couple weeks. Waltham's election for mayor and city councilors' seats will be held on Nov. 6.
