Candidate McCormick delivers 17,000 signatures
BOSTON (AP) — Independent candidate for governor Jeff McCormick says he’s submitted more than 17,000 signatures to local city and town clerks to help secure a spot on the November ballot.
Once the clerks certify the signatures, McCormick has until Aug. 26 to deliver them to state Secretary William Galvin’s office.
The Boston venture capitalist needs at least 10,000 certified signatures to get his name on the ballot.
McCormick, who founded Saturn Partners in 1993, is running as a ticket with his running mate, Yarmouth Selectwoman Tracy Post. He says he wants to give voters “a true independent choice.”
Other candidates for governor include: Republicans Charlie Baker and Mark Fisher; Democrats Martha Coakley, Steve Grossman and Don Berwick; and independents Evan Falchuk and Scott Lively.
Election Day is Nov. 4.
