Two Democrats in running for state representative seat in Nashua
Former alderman Carl Andrade and former Board of Education member Latha Mangipudi will face off in the primary election. Potential candidates still have until Monday to file to run for the House of Representatives seat left vacant when Roland LaPlante resigned in February because of ongoing health issues.
“I think that during these times, Nashua needs good representation. I understand the issues, and I am already out there in the community,” said Andrade, 66.
Mangipudi, 52, has lived in Nashua since 1989. She currently works for Interim HealthCare in Manchester, and has been active with the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and the Nashua Democratic City Committee.
She is hoping that more people become involved in the democratic process in America, and believes she can bring a different perspective to the table.
According to City Clerk Paul Bergeron Mangipudi and Andrade are the only two candidates, so far, to file for the special election. However, the filing period continues today at Nashua City Hall, and is open until Monday at the Secretary of State’s Office in Concord.
