2/25/07, 10:15 p.m., UPDATE: In response to our inquiry about the unfilled Democratic candidate slots above, Councilperson Keith Moore, also Co-Chair of the Norwood Democratic Club, had this to say, “We should not be surprised if there are more candidates by the May independent filing deadline.” He indicated things are still in flux and more candidates are likely to come forward.
2/23/07, 1:15 p.m., UPDATE: We just received word from the Republican camp that their intended candidate for council for Ward 3, Sean Mangialardo, missed yesterday’s filing deadline, in large part, because he was on the receiving end of a clerical mishap with the Board of Elections. Having been given outdated petition forms, Mr. Mangialardo's petitions were rejected when he submitted them 3 days in advance of the deadline. Needless to say, this created a crisis, and replacement signatures were not gathered in time. The good news? It’s expected that Mr. Mangialardo will file in time to become an independent candidate for Ward 3 with the full support of the Republicans. While we do not know if the intended Democratic candidate for Ward 2 met a similar fate or not, we were told by the Board of Elections this morning that a female Democrat attempted to file but did so after the 4:00 p.m. deadline.
