City Council to Vote on Special Election to replace Turner

City Council to Vote on Special Election to replace Turner


by: Jamarhl Crawford, Blackstonian

City Council President Michael Ross has filed the motion to set the date for the Special Election to fill the City Council seat of Chuck Turner.  City Council will most likely make their final decisions today as to the dates for Special Election. The preliminary election is slated for February 15th, with the final election one month later on March 15.

The special election has become necessary after the conviction of Councilor Chuck Turner on Federal charges. Boston City Council has a rule that no one convicted of a felony can serve on the Council and held proceedings which resulted in an 11-1 Council Vote to oust Turner.
