State Senator Don Humason has announced that he’s running for mayor of Westfield.
“I want to thank Brian Sullivan for his service to our city as Mayor and City Councilor,” Humason said in a statement sent to 22News. “I was sorry to hear that he would not be running for re-election. That got me thinking about the position and serving my hometown in a new and different way other than as a state representative or state senator.”
Humason said if he’s elected, he’d focus on the future of Westfield.
“If I am fortunate enough to earn the votes of the residents of the Whip City I want to focus on the next 350 years of our city,” Humason explained. “What will our legacy be for the people of Westfield and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts?”
Humason (R- Westfield) has represented 11 western Massachusetts communities as a state senator for six years.
Nomination papers for mayor become available in April.
