The former land use management director for the town of Westford and town
planner in Marshfield will be joining the United Independent Party ticket to
win the corner office in Massachusetts, according to State House News Service.
Angus Jennings will be joining Evan Falchuk, the founder of the party, as the lieutenant governor candidate this November.
Jennings said his experience in small towns showed he had “a unique perspective on local government” and was well known in the city and town planning communities.
The two must collect 10,000 certified signatures from around the state by late July in order to gain ballot access.
“We expect that there’s going to be a lot of grassroots interest around the Commonwealth,” Jennings said, referring to his teaming with Falchuk.
The pair plan to release a detailed plan on how to address housing policy in the state while preserving local zoning control.
Jennings was born in Springfield and grew up in Wilbraham and reportedly has descendants who arrived in North America on the Mayflower.
