Confirmed: Dionne to run Ward 4 write-in campaign

Trisha Dionne has confirmed that she is switching gears in her race for the Concord City Council. This morning, Dionne emailed that she would be dropping out of the at-large race and would challenge one-term Ward 4 Councilor Dick Lemieux. She decided to email Lemieux on Monday and told people at the Thursday forum of the change.
"Yesterday, I informed the League of Women Voters that I thought it would be unethical for me to speak at the forum they hosted last night at Rundlett. That it was likely that Dick had not been invited and would not have an opportunity to speak."
Dionne said she would forward the email she sent to Dick about her run. When she does that, we'll post it.

Correction: In the article, "In at-large City Council race, it's insiders vs. newcomers," Dionne was described as currently serving in the military. She is actually an academic advisor to military-affiliated students at Southern New Hampshire University.
