“I look forward to supporting a candidate to represent us in Super District 6, who brings a fresh perspective with creative and innovative ideas to tackle the list with you,” Gannon wrote. “There should be an announcement in the coming days and I will keep you posted.”
At the time of Gannon's announcement, only one candidate — Democrat Robert Murphy, a local realtor — had filed paperwork with the state declaring intent to run for the Super District 6 seat.
But on Jan. 23, digital media executive and community activist Emily Halevy announced her own campaign. Gannon confirmed that Halevy was the candidate she referenced in her newsletter.
