BaddourFile.jpgBill Kirk of the Lawrence Eagle Tribune has a short list of possible candidates that may run for Steven Baddour's soon-to-be open seat:

Among the names thrown out there as possible candidates on the Democratic side: Haverhill Mayor James Fiorentini, former Methuen Mayor Bill Manzi, Methuen City Councilor Sean Fountain, and Baddour's predecessor Jim Jajuga of Methuen, who is the outgoing president of the Haverhill Chamber of Commerce.

On the Republican side, former Congressional candidate Sam Meas of Haverhill said he may run and people are wondering if Al DiNuccio, who ran unsuccessfully for Methuen mayor twice, will throw his hat into the ring.

Whole thing here.

The deadline to make the ballot is May 1 but only 300 signatures are required to get on the ballot. To avoid challenges candidates will probably have to gather 400-500 just to be safe.

Baddour announced his resignation from the State Senate yesterday.

Baddour joins fellow State Senators Frederick Berry and Susan Fargo in not seeking reelection this November.
