CONCORD (AP) — Voters in New Hampshire's largest city are preparing to head to the polls for primary day in city government races.
Manchester residents will vote Tuesday in primaries for mayor, alderman and school board. Most eyes will be on the mayoral contest. It is non-partisan, meaning the top two candidates, regardless of party, will move to the general election.
Incumbent Mayor Ted Gatsas — a Republican and former state Senate president — is seeking a fourth term.
Alderman Joyce Craig and Patrick Arnold, both Democrats, are also seeking the city's top job. Craig is a former school board member who is campaigning in part on her efforts to improve the city schools. Arnold is a former alderman who ran unsuccessfully against Gatsas in 2013.
