Flores not a registered voter

Rapper Jason "Fury" Flores is not a registered voter, according to city records.
Though Flores said he plans to run for mayor as an independent, he can't seek the city's top job unless he registers to vote.
The city charter says that "no person shall be qualified to be a candidate for any elective municipal office in the City of Bristol unless such person shall be an elector of said city."
To be an elector of the city means only that someone is registered to vote.
At this point, there are no declared candidates for mayor, though Republican Ken Cockayne is weighing a run and Democrat Art Ward may be eyeing another term.

Why do you insist on giving this guy more than his 15 minutes of fame?

This kid is a horse's ass, and he's making you look like one too, Steve.

Ignore them, Steve. The kid has more going for him than these tired old farts realize.

Hmmmm Jason Welch just moved here and he is now the senator. He just registered in Bristol and he only voted in one Presidentl primary. I don't think he even voted before that. But according to the wacko's on this blog that's OK.

i don't know if flores has a criminal record but many politicians don't have good records themselves. we all know that many of them (senators, mayors,govenors,wall street, etc etc etc etc)are crooks and went to jail after getting elected. if they are puertoricans or latinos that is news to me.

Not registered to vote yet ....true. No criminal record...true....Holds a full time job...and does his art on the side ....true.....Cares about Bristol...the community....and raising his son....true....was a cub scout, boy scout and did public service TV in his past....true...and is a philipino american also true.If he runs for Mayor he will be doing it for all the right reasons....not old school politics. And if he doesn't run he will still be the valued Bristol citizen that he has always been. Don't make up racial judgements...it's just not appealing, or intellegent

How can some rapper who is inexperienced an has no clue how to run a city expect to be mayor. he made a rap song calling mayor art ward a "Ho" in it after the mayor almost lost his life. this "kid" has no class an lives in a fantasy land where he thinks hes king. his 15 mins are over so Steve, please stop makin stories about this idiot. if you want to write about local rappers theres plenty of better ones. an if anyone wants a good laugh listen to the "jay Fury Diss" song by Bill Staxx on youtube. its funny and he defends jays comment about art Ward.

why don't you people get over the past houws your past all look? you a goodie good when you grew up. i bet no. i bet at least half the people read this smoked weed when they grow up at least a little bit once in a while.so what this guy is gong what he does best. making his money jsut like you and me. it's a differnt world now then it use to be. i'm a younger voter. i grew up in this town. and i think it might be good to have a young person in town to help make this great city grow to what it needs to be. we are in a hole and this town is going to be a waste land soon if we dont start making some crazy decisions in this town. idk if jason will do good or not but i think he is what we need in this town. i've know him since we were kids. and yea he's a joke but i think he will serve his town good. listen to his ideas not who he was.

To 3:57 I think the only one here that's a "horses ass" is the namecaller on here not Flores nor Steve.

Be polite, please. Be aware, too, that your words will mean more if you identify yourself. If you see a comment that should be killed, please tell me about it, including where I can find it in order to remove it. Do yourself a favor and remember that somebody can sue you, subpoena records from Google and find out who you are. So don't say something you wouldn't want to defend in court.
Does anybody read this?

But Colapietro was an uneducated, cognitively limited, union lackey that couldn't even do difficult work in a machine shop.

Welch is a dramatic improvement.

5:58 He may have been uneducated but he sure had a lot more class than "useless" you!

Are you wierdos running out of things to complain about? Gotta go back to bashing Colapietro? Go ahead and show your true idiotic colors. Gutless wonders!

7:16 Now you know that's a boldface lie! And have you ever got your hands dirty? If so prove it! You can't !
