U.S. Rep. Hopeful Nuciforo Submits Nomination Papers

Staff Reports

Andrea Nuciforo became the first canidate to officially enter the race on Thursday.
 
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — Andrea Nuciforo became the first official candidate for the Democratic primary for the U.S. House of Representatives Thursday.

The Middle Berkshire Registar of Deeds and former state Senator submitted more than the required 2,000 signatures to become the first candidate on the ballot. Nuciforo will be running against U.S. Rep. Richard Neal, D-Springfield, and writer Bill Shein.

Nuciforo hand-delivered the nomination papers to the Secretary of the Commonwealth's Springfield office.

"Being the first candidate to complete this monumental task is a clear sign of the strength of our organization and message. Voters across central and western Massachusetts have told me time, and time again that after 24 years, they're ready to send a strong Democrat to Washington that will stand up for woman's right to choose, and stand up against the Wall Street deregulation ushered on by Rep. Neal," Nuciforo said.

"This is the first time Rep. Neal has had a meaningful primary challenge, so thanks to the dozens of volunteers, interns, family and friends that were out pounding the pavement and knocking on doors to secure my name on the Sept. 6 primary ballot, we're one step closer toward being represented by a real progressive."

The newly drawn district covers parts of Hampden, Hampshire, Franklin and Worcester counties and all of the Berkshires. The Berkshire's current Rep. John Olver, D-Amherst, is retiring and redrawn districts pits Nuciforo and Shein against Springfield-based Neal.
