Senator Jim Marzilli released the following statement today:
“This is to inform my supporters and constituents that I will not be seeking re-election in September as Senator for the 4th Middlesex District. My state house staff will continue to respond to the needs of constituents within the district until the end of my term.
“Susan and I thank the many of you who have reached out with your love and kindness in the past few days and we ask for your continued good wishes and support during this very difficult time.”
The Globe also reports that more allegations against Marzilli are surfacing.
In any event, as it is now too late for anyone else to run for Marzilli’s seat, it appears that the Democratic candidates for Senator from the 4th Middlesex district will be Ken Donnelly and Jack Hurd. Anyone know if Brian Cangiamila managed the required number of signatures on the Republican side?
