Brockton: Councilor-at-large seeks higher office

A City Councilor-at-Large from Brockton has announced that he is running for state representative of the 11th Plymouth District.

Robert Sullivan, who is a Democrat, is seeking the position after incumbent Geraldine Creedon, announced that she would not seek re-election.

Sullivan, an attorney, was elected to the position of City Council president in 2008.

He also has acted as chief legal counsel to the Joint Committee on Election Laws for the Massachusetts House of Representatives.

As a result of the state’s recent redistricting, the 11th Plymouth District now consists of the west and north sections of Brockton and precincts 1-5 in neighboring Easton.

About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
