GREENFIELD — It all started the day after Mayor Dick Pasco was laid to rest earlier this week.
While there had been quiet rumblings about who would take the reins as Greenfield’s mayor since Pasco’s death Dec. 10, those hoping to complete his term began announcing their plans Tuesday, just after the community paid its finally respects to Pasco and his family.
At least five candidates have emerged in the past five days, throwing their names in the hat for a Republican Party caucus set for 7 p.m. Dec. 30.
So far, city council members John Patton, Judy Swift and Mitch Pendlum are running, as is Greenfield Republican Chuck Fewell and Libertarian and former mayoral candidate Phil Miller.
