Sullivan Explores Aldermanic Race

(MANCHESTER)- Peter Sullivan said today that he is exploring a race for the Manchester Board of Aldermen in 2007.

Sullivan recently completed his third term as a member of the New Hampshire House of Representatives.

"Over the last month, several Manchester residents have asked me to consider running for alderman", said Sullivan. "These people come from a variety of personal and political backgrounds, but they are all tired of a city government that is fiscally irresponsible and out of touch with the public. I share that frustration".

"If I run for alderman, I'll work to create a city government that is fiscally responsible, efficient, and bound by the highest standards of ethical conduct. I want to see a city government that is open to new ideas, new voices, and a new committment to our neighborhoods".

Sullivan will decide in the spring whether to pursue a campaign for alderman at large or to seek the Ward 3 position.

Peter Sullivan, an attorney, served three terms as a member of the New Hampshire House of Representatives, where he was a member of the Criminal Justice & Public Safety Committee and the State-Federal Relations and Veteran's Affairs Committee.

For ten years, Sullivan served as a member of the US Army Reserve and the Army National Guard.

In 2003, Sullivan received national recognition for his legislative work when he was named one of the top one hundred rising stars in American politics by the centrist Democratic Leadership Council, joining a select group that also included current US Senator Barack Obama.
