Hogan Becomes First Official Candidate In Race for Lowell City Council
First candidate to qualify for ballot pledges to be a fresh new voice for neighborhood issues, smarter development
LOWELL – Marty Hogan, a resident of Lowell's Centralville neighborhood, announced today that he has been certified as the first candidate to turn in the required number of signatures to officially appear on the ballot in the race for Lowell City Council later this year.
"We turned in twice as many signatures as required within just a couple days of papers becoming available," Hogan said. "I received a call from the City of Lowell's Election Department late today, and they told me that I'm qualified for the ballot."
"I worked hard to collect the required signatures quickly, and I am grateful to my supporters for helping me to file this paperwork," Hogan added. "The people of Lowell can rely on me to work just as tirelessly and effectively on their behalf once I am elected."
In a recent statement announcing his candidacy, Hogan pledged to be a stronger voice for neighborhood interests and vowed to provide better representation for tens of thousands of Lowell residents whose priorities are often overlooked by city councilors. "I want to bring a new perspective to our City Council, one that focuses on neighborhoods like the one I live in," Hogan said. "I will be a fresh new voice for all the people who live in Lowell and for all their important views and concerns, most especially public safety." He also promised to improve the way Lowell addresses community development.
Hogan says he intends to keep up the early momentum of his campaign and to wage an energetic race throughout the summer. He plans to host an official campaign kickoff event for supporters in coming weeks.
