McClure gets a challenger in Ward 3

The city clerk has sent out the latest of candidate filings and it looks like Ward 3 Councilor Jan McClure will have competition this November.
The challenge comes from Juston Kay of North State Street, who took out papers to run for the Ward seat today. Kay seems to be on the "freedom-loving" side of the ledger, since he sports a "Don't Tread on Me" flag as his facebook icon, and has friends such as Manchester Mayor Frank Guinta, a potential Republican candidate for Congress in District 1. He also seems to be a new resident to North State Street, since he isn't listed in the 2007 voter checklist.

Ward 2 Councilor William Stetson also pulled papers to run again. No other council candidates have come forward.

Over in the school board race, only Kass Ardinger and Christopher Casko have taken out papers to run, as of 4 p.m. today, according to a source.
