Cronin In Race For Creedon's Seat, Stewart Still Deciding

BROCKTON--Days after State Rep. Geraldine Creedon announced she would not seek reelection to the 11th Plymouth seat, an Easton resident and Brockton native is ready to launch a campaign for the district.
Claire Cronin, 52, in an email announcing her candidacy, said she believes her skills as a lawyer and active member of the Easton and Brockton communities would bring effective leadership in the political arena.
“My mediation experience requires an ability to bring parties with different agendas together and I hope to apply this skill to make government the best it can be,” Cronin said. (Pictured, top)
Creedon, who has had medical problems over the last few years, announced over the weekend she would not seek reelection to the seat she has filled since 1995.
The 11th Plymouth district
represents Precincts 1 through 5 in Easton; and Wards 1, 3D, 7C and 7D in Brockton.
Cronin is believed to be the first candidate to announce she will seek election to Creedon’s seat.
Brockton Councilor-at-large Jass Stewart said Cronin’s announcement will not effect his decision to run for Creedon’s seat-- a run that has been speculated about in political circles for at least a year.
