Zoppo seeks return to City Council

Former city Councilor Ellen Zoppo hopes to reclaim a seat on the council this year.
In an email sent to Democratic Town Committee members Monday, Zoppo said she is running for in the 3rd District for one of the six council slots.
Zoppo has not held political office since losing a mayoral bid in 2007 when fellow Democrat Art Ward defeated her in a bitter primary.
The divide created by the primary was never healed. Just last week, Ward chose to replace her from a volunteer appointed post on the city’s Cemetery Commission, a move she said sparked her decision to run this year.
