Two Democrats jump into 2nd District race
Two more City Council candidates jumped into the race on the Democratic side last night.
In the 2nd District, Allen Marko and Bob Vojtek are hoping to claim seats for the Democrats.
Marko, a history teacher, has run before without success. Vojtek, a Board of Finance member, is taking his first crack at elected office. Vojtek works as the director of technology for the Avon school system.
The only other announced candidate in the district is incumbent Republican Henri Martin, who is seeking a second term.
Democrat Tim Gamache pulled out of the race recently, citing unspecified health concerns.
Update at 10 a.m. Tuesday: The other GOP council candidate in the district is likely to be Finance Chairman Rich Miecznikowski, who is expected to announce his intentions soon.
