Stewart To Run For 11th Plymouth

BROCKTON--Brockton City Councilor-at-large Jass Stewart announced via email and Facebook he will be third Democratic Party candidate to seek election to the 11th Plymouth State Representative seat. 
In a Facebook entry Thursday, March 8 and in an email Sunday, Stewart said he decided to run for the seat after several public meet-and-greets, and a last minute wish from his son Jajuan, who left Brockton last week for Japan and his first tour of duty in the military. 
Stewart notes when Jajuan departed Stewart asked the young man what he thought about Stewart's potential run for the state rep. seat, and Jajuan replied: "Go for it. My job is to make sure people have the freedom to vote. Your job is to make sure they have a reason to vote."
It was then, Stewart writes, he decided to make a run for the 11th Plymouth. 
Stewart said as a Brockton City Councilor, he has earned a reputation for being independent, hard working, and focused on results from holding government accountable and helping to create jobs, to responding to the needs of residents and making my son proud.
"I am ready to bring these values to the State House," Stewart said.  
Stewart will hold a campaign kick-off event,  Tuesday, April 3, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at Tutto/Pasta Bene, 1050 Pearl St.
Stewart joins Democrats Claire Cronin and Robert Sullivan, who have already announced their candidacy for the seat which includes precincts 1 to 5 in Easton and in Brockton all of Ward 1, Ward 3D, and Wards 7C and 7D.
