Stewart To Seek Reelection To Councilor-At-Large Seat

By Lisa E. Crowley
BROCKTON--Brockton City Councilor-at-large Jass Stewart has decided he will run for reelection to the council instead of seeking a shot at the mayor's seat.
"It's official. I’m seeking reelection to the City Council this November because Brockton needs leaders who are ready to shake up the status quo, hold people accountable, and inspire a new trust in our government," Stewart states in an email announcing a campaign fundraiser at Tamboo restaurant July 31.
Stewart could not immediately be reached for further comment.
Stewart came close to winning election to the mayor's seat against James Harrington and contemplated another run after a group of high school students recently launched a petition urging him to run for mayor and offering their support.
Candidates have until 5 p.m. Friday, July 29 to pull nomination papers to seek office.
Nomination papers must be returned to the Elections Commission by 5 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 2
