Four-way race is shaping up for Brockton mayor

A four-way race for mayor is shaping up in Brockton, pitting a city councilor, a local health department code enforcement officer, and a retired businessman against incumbent Linda Balzotti, who is seeking a third term in the top job.

Although nomination papers will not be available until June, Ward 7 Councilor Christopher MacMillan and retiree Ron Matta have been on the campaign trail for months. Bill Carpenter, the city employee who also serves on the School Committee, entered the race earlier this month, debuting the slogan: “It Takes a Carpenter to Build a City.”
