New School Committee Member for New Bedford

TSM

Seven candidates tossed their hats into the ring for New Bedford’s School Committee vacancy, but only one emerged victorious Monday. That man was Housing Authority Chairman Bruce Oliveira, who took 12 of a possible 17 votes from a joint session of the City Council and School Board. Oliveira tells WBSM News, each candidate brought a unique skill set to the table, and he’s grateful for the opportunity he’s been given.
