WESTFIELD – After telling the The Westfield News in February that he was considering a run for Mayor, State Senator Donald F. Humason, Jr. (R-Westfield) officially announced this morning that he has decided to run for Mayor of the City of Westfield after 18 years in state government.
“I want to thank Brian Sullivan for his service to our city as Mayor and City Councilor,” Humason said. “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 that after hearing from a number of city residents urging him to take this step and discussing the campaign with his family, he made the decision to become a candidate for Mayor.
“I love Westfield. And I look forward to speaking with the City Councilors, School Committee members, and Gas & Electric Commissioners with whom I hope to work side by side for Westfield,” Humason said. “No person has all the answers. We govern best when we work collaboratively. There is nothing wrong with Westfield that what’s right with Westfield can’t fix.”
Humason noted that this year Westfield celebrates its 350th year as a town. “Our focus will be on the rich history of our people and institutions. 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. What will our legacy be for the people of Westfield and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts?”
Nomination papers for the position of Mayor become available next month and he and his campaign team plan a formal kickoff event in April. Humason intends to continue in his job as State Senator during the campaign for Mayor.
