FRAMINGHAM – Sam Mercurio, a candidate for at-large Framingham City Council, has withdrawn from his run for office.
Mercurio said this is being done due to his inability to properly campaign as a result of an injury to his left foot. he has been forced to wear a support “boot” to prevent further ligament damage. Mercurio is severely limited in his ability to campaign door-to-door.
Between twice weekly physical therapy and lack of mobility, he cannot collect the necessary signatures by the final date.
As this issue will continue for several more week,s Mercurio cannot devote the time and energy required by the run for office.
If anyone would like a souvenir of his run, Mercurio said he would be happy to provide a now passe yard sign.
