Brockton: Despite calls for mayoral run, Stewart aiming to stay on City Council

A group of Brockton high school students are petitioning city councilman Jass Stewart to run for Mayor in the city of Brockton.

The three students, who Stewart chaperoned on a trip to a Washington D.C. entrepreneurship conference, have launched an online petition on the website Ipetition.com, urging Stewart to run.

But according to Stewart, his plan doesn’t include a run for mayor right now. In fact, he has said that he would like to seek re-election as a city councilman.

Stewart lost bids for mayor in 2006 and 2008.

Mayor Linda Balzotti said on her website she plans to seek re-election. The election is set for November 8th.
