Nashua candidates make it official as filing period begins
Tuesday was the first day of the filing period, prompting several incumbents to hand in their paperwork early and get a jump start on the campaigning season.
"During the first day, especially the first hour, we had a lot of people turn out," said City Clerk Paul Bergeron.
A few newcomers registered to run for alderman seats, including Corey Genest and Sean McGuinness for Ward 1, Paul Shea and David Schoneman for Ward 3, Ken Siegel for Ward 9 and Kathy Snyder for Ward 6.
"I really want to represent Ward 6 and try to get the residents' voices heard and air their concerns," said Snyder. "I definitely think change would be great. I am looking forward to this, and I am excited about the race."
The filing period will close on Sept. 6, according to Bergeron, who said he will post daily updates on the city's website to announce who has filed for various positions. Nashua's municipal general election is slated for Nov. 5, with the inauguration set to take place on Jan. 5, firstname.lastname@example.org
