CUMBERLAND â€“ The field of candidates to replace departing Mayor Daniel McKee grew to three on Friday as former Town Councilman Daniel Alves announced his bid for the seat.
Alves, a Democrat like the two other prospective candidates, Manuel DaCosta and William Murray, pointed to both his council experience and his operation of small business for nearly 40 years as making him well qualified for the townâ€™s executive post.
â€śMr. McKee, who has done a fine job, has chosen to seek the lieutenant governorâ€™s position and we are going to assist him to the best of our ability,â€ť Alves said at his Galindaâ€™s Automotive Service business at 94 Broad St. near Town Hall on Friday.
