Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin has announced the special election for the 32nd Middlesex District (to replace Mike Festa) and released the calendar of important dates including filing deadlines and the primary and election dates.
The primary is set for February 5, 2008, which may coincide with the state’s presidential primary. The general election will then be on March 4, 2008, which may also be the presidential primary, depending on whether or not the presidential primary is moved up.
I will be taking nomination papers on Monday, November 26, 2007 and setting up my committee at about the same time. Once my committee is arranged, we will be able to accept donations to put forth a full-throated campaign for the progressive principles that hold sway in the 32nd Middlesex.
Thank you for your support.
Jeffrey Carter Gilson
