Four more enter council race

Sixteen candidates now running in Lawrence


The charges were eventually dismissed. Gonzalez said he needed the gun for protection at his job as a cashier at a Broadway liquor store, but has since surrendered his gun permit. He also drives a school bus in Plaistow, N.H., and worked for 25 years at Vernon Plastics in Haverhill, until the plant closed in 2003.

Vasquez, who is seeking a second two-year term on the City Council, and Aquino, who is seeking a third, did not return phone calls or e-mails yesterday.

Lawrence residents also will elect a mayor this year. Besides Rivera, incumbent William Lantigua has picked up nominating petitions, as have Nestor DeJesus, an accountant, and James O’Donoghue, a self-described inventor.

Residents also will elect committees that oversee Lawrence public schools and the Greater Lawrence Technical School, but those races have attracted little interest so far.
