Guest Guest Posted January 2, 2006 Report Share Posted January 2, 2006 According to an unconfirmed report, Councilman James Doran has been letting on to some friends and close associates that he will be running for mayor in this year’s election. There had been some speculation that Doran might forego this year’s election with an eye on a top appointment within the state Department of Education. But after legal consultation, Doran was advised that such appointment would not preclude him from holding an elected municipal position. “The calendar pages are turning,” Doran observed. “2006 is upon us. Whoever let it out that it would be by St. Patrick’s Day that I’ll decide, is right. But, as it stands now, I’ll probably do it.” Doran went on. “But in politics, a single day is a decade. One never knows. Christ, the Election Commission hasn’t even come up with a deadline date for petitions, yet. But as sure as April follows March 17th, they will.” “Me against Higgins and McDonough is a no-brainer,” Doran insisted. “I think they have mistook my silence over the past years as weakness. They’re entitled to their misperceptions.” “As I see it,” Doran further speculated, “this is between me and Pete. McDonough’s not a part of the equation here. I plan on finishing the job I started back in ’98.” Neither Peter B. Higgins or Raymond McDonough could be reached for comment. (Again, this was an unconfirmed report.)
