Roche says no to City Council bid
So what are the city's Democrats doing? Who knows?
They still don't have a mayoral candidate or half the City Council candidates. But, hey, it's only mid-July.
One possible council contender, Dave Roche, announced this morning he's not going to run.
He posted this on Facebook:
Just wanted to say thanks to all the calls asking me to run for Bristol City Council, after much thought I have decided not to run at this time, I have to put 100% of my time leading my brothers and sister Sheet Metal Workers and State Building Trades, along with trying to enjoy my kids and grandkids. To divide my time up any more would not be productive or effective. I will be there to support those who are running and wish you as all good luck. P.S. this doesn't mean I'm done with politics you never know what I may do next but whatever it is it will be for the best interest of the people I represent and it will be when I can put a 100% into it,and that's when I'm at my best.
