Marlborough mayoral candidates take stands

Marlborough – After three terms as Marlborough's mayor, Nancy Stevens will be handing over the keys to the city's top office in November. Hoping to take her place are three candidates – Arthur Vigeant, the current City Council president; Matthew Jones, a local attorney; and Jim Mosso, the owner of an online news business.

Vigeant wants to ensure that the city becomes as fiscally self-sufficient as possible, because he believes cities cannot rely on the state and federal government to always come to their aid. Jones has been focusing on job safety and stability, as it pertains not only to individuals but also to companies in the city's business sector. Mosso is also concerned with the business community. He stresses the need to attract new companies to the city and to help existing ones with their current and future needs.

A primary election will be held Oct. 4. The top two contenders will go on to the municipal election to be held Nov. 1.
