Dennis Giantassio has filed his signatures and his name will likely appear on the ballot as he attempts his first run for political office against Everett Representative Steven “Stat” Smith.
According to a variety of local sources, former Mayor John Hanlon is apparently considering a run.
Hanlon has told friends and supporters that he’d like a new challenge.
In addition, sources claim Alderman Robert Van Campen would also like to take a shot at the representative’s seat and is mulling over exactly what to do.
Candidates considering a run for the rep seat need to file their signatures in the city clerk’s office by April 28.
