A Busy Day at the Election Department: Nineteen Candidates Pull Papers for 2019 Election

Many cities and towns call the first phase of the nomination process for municipal elections “pulling papers.” Others call it “taking out papers” or “drawing papers.”

Call it what you will, but 18 candidates for office walked in to Election Commissioner Diane Colella’s office at City Hall Monday to pull nomination papers for the 2019 election. On Tuesday, a 19th candidate took out papers.

Colella said some candidates were outside the Election Office prior to the official launching time of 8:15 a.m. as listed on the Revere Election Calendar.

Eight candidates for Councillor-at-Large pulled papers seeking one of the five citywide seats on the City Council.

Seven candidates pulled papers in the ward races. Ward 6 Councillor Charlie Patch announced earlier that he will not be a candidate for election. Three candidates, Nicholas Moulaison Sr., Frances C. Sarro, and Richard Serino pulled papers for that seat.

John F. Kingston Susan Gravellese have pulled papers for School Committee.
