Senior Writer Jen Myers, of The [Lowell] Sun posted a comment at Left in Lowell about the misunderstanding over whether I am open to running for a seat in 2013, whether there Is an appointment to fill an open Mike Lenzi seat or not. For the record, I am.
I apologize if I misspoke or mislead Ms Myers in any way—or spoke and then later thought better of it and forgot the original comment. Not running was never my intention. When I saw the original Sun Blog post I thought it was an error on the part of Mr Chris Camire and made a comment on my own blog. I should have called The Sun, but didn't want to be bugging people doing real work.
In other news, this AM on "City Life" current incumbent George O'Hare suggested Terry McCarthy might seek the seat. Since someone jokingly suggested this to him yesterday morning, in my presence, and he denied the rumor, I thought it was interesting and called him. He called back from the links, where he is participating in a Charity Golf Event. He affirmed that he s NOT interested in the seat. There is a lot of flux out there and while Gerry Nutter may have correctly handicapped the race, I think there will be a lot more change before it gets to the vote for the Voke.
