MARLBOROUGH – Voters will decide contested races for mayor, Ward 4 City Council and school committee in Marlborough’s city elections later this year, the City Clerk’s office confirmed last week.
A finalized listing of candidates shared on Sept. 3 included Maureen Brennan, who submitted paperwork and secured her spot on the ballot just before the deadline to do so last month. She will challenge incumbent School Committee members Michelle Bodin-Hettinger, Earl J. Geary and Denise E. Ryan.
Bodin-Hettinger is currently the committee’s vice chair.
Elsewhere on the ballot, Teona Brown is running against incumbent Ward 4 City Councilor Robert Tunnera.
Mayor Arthur Vigeant, meanwhile, is facing Marlborough Police Patrol Officer David Garceau, as Garceau makes a second bid at the city’s highest office. Vigeant won his first mayoral election in 2011 and is now seeking a sixth term.
Vigeant defeated Garceau in 2019, earning just over 3,500 votes. Garceau earned just 2,000.
The election will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 2.
