One local elected official will face a challenger in the Sept. 9 primary election, while three other officials are running unopposed.
Democrat state Sen. Sonia Chang-Díaz (2nd Suffolk District) will face Roy Owens, a regular candidate for elected office, in the primary. The winner will face in November’s general election David James Wyatt, another regular candidate who had a failed mayoral bid in 2013. He is running unopposed in the Republican primary.
Democrat state Reps. Jeffrey Sánchez (15th Suffolk District), Russell Holmes (6th Suffolk District) and Liz Malia (11th Suffolk District) will not face opponents in either the primary election or the general election in November.
