With the political filing deadline mere hours away, few Bristol candidates have declared for office as of lunchtime Wednesday, according to the Bristol Board of Canvassers. But that’s not to say no one is running for office in Bristol.
Candidates are expected to declare en masse before the 4 p.m. deadline, with political parties delivering the filings instead of individual candidates. Those running for Town Council, Town Administrator, State Senate and the State House of Representatives must declare their intentions by the deadline to make it on the ballot.
It is anticipated the parties will file on behalf of the candidates some time after 2 p.m. today. Check out the Bristol Phoenix and eastbayri.com Thursday morning for a full listing of candidates
