State Senator Harriette Chandler will face a Republican challenger this year for the first time since 2006.
Northborough Democrat-turned-Republican (a trend in local elections this year) William Higgins formally announced his candidacy today, even though his name was on the Republican primary ballot on September 14.
Higgins says he’s implementing a two-term limit on himself, will donate all $80,000 of his salary to local charities and will refuse all donations from registered lobbyists and PACs.
In the past, Higgins has been district campaign coordinator for both Congressman Joseph Early and MA senate majority leader Dan Foley.
