A first time candidate in Springfield’s municipal election has won a rare endorsement from a veteran Massachusetts politician.
State Rep. Benjamin Swan, dean of the city’s legislative delegation, Wednesday announced his support for Jesse Lederman’s bid to win an at-large seat on the Springfield City Council in the November 3rd election.
" He's a young man. He's energetic, " Swan said of Lederman. " He'll be a very positive addition to the council."
