Morad To Seek Re-Election To City Council
Linda Morad says she will run for re-election to the City Council. Morad returned to the Council two years ago and hopes to be re-elected as one of five at large City Councilors in November.
Morad says if she's successful, she'll continue to focus on city finances and economic development. She tells WBSM News, not much is happening in the city. "There's very little growth in the city, there's very few ribbon-cuttings, there's not a lot to celebrate," says Morad.
She added, "there's a lot of new trees and there's a sprinkler system and things like that, but that doesn't pay the bills." Morad says her biggest disappointment was Amazon and its hundreds of jobs deciding to locate in Fall River rather than New Bedford.
She admits to thinking about running for Mayor, but says she loves her private-sector job at St. Anne's Credit Union and she loves serving on the City Council, so she decided to run for re-election, rather than seek the corner office.
