Is Menard running for mayor or not?

September 17, 2011

WOONSOCKET – With time running out to claim a place on the ballot, all the signs are pointing against former Mayor Susan D. Menard taking on incumbent Mayor Leo T. Fontaine.
The former seven-term mayor fulfilled a preliminary requirement for becoming a contender on Aug. 30 by filing declaration papers. To secure a spot on the ballot Menard must still return nomination papers with the signatures of at least 100 registered voters.
