Cariddi Assembling Campaign Team

North Adams City Council President Gailanne Cariddi
North Adams - City Council President Gailanne Cariddi is assembling a campaign team to assist with a likely run for the state's 1st Berkshire District House of Representatives seat.

Cariddi is one of a growing list of potential candidates who have said they plan to seek the two-year term currently held by Rep. Daniel E. Bosley.

On Sunday, Bosley was named as an economic advisor to Gov.-elect Deval Patrick, and he will likely resign from the post after Patrick takes the Governor's Oath of Office on Jan. 4.

Cariddi said that she is planning to campaign for the office but is holding off on a formal announcement for several reasons. First and foremost is that Bosley has not officially resigned the post, she said.

"There is a process that has to unfold," she said. "We have to let it unfold."

During an interview earlier this week, Bosley said that he would likely be sworn into office with other state legislators during a Jan. 3 ceremony. Then, following Patrick's swearing-in ceremony, he would likely resign to accept the position with Patrick's cabinet. A special primary election and special election would then be scheduled to elect a new representative, he said.

Cariddi said that she is not "on the fence" about whether to seek election. Her plans are to seek the Democratic nomination for the seat, she said.

Former Williamstown Selectwoman Margaret J. Ware, Adams Selectmen's Chairman Edward MacDonald, Adams Selectman Joseph Solomon, Adams resident John Zelazo, North Adams City Councilor Richard Alcombright and Heath Selectmen's Chairman Thomas Lively have all expressed interest in the representative's seat.

There is no special election scheduled at this time and no potential candidate has filed any papers for the seat.
