Brian Mannal of Centerville to formally announce next month
Brian Mannal of Centerville will to run for State Representative as a Democrat in the 2nd Barnstable District and challenge Demetrius Atsalis in the primary election.
The 36-year old attorney is a member of several local boards related to education, workforce development, and economic development, including the Centerville Elementary School Council, the Cape and Islands Workforce Investment Board, and the Cape Cod Economic Development Council.
He grew up in Centerville, but moved away with his family to Albuquerque when he was in eighth grade. He returned to the Cape briefly after college, and permanently three years ago.
He says, "Although I am a registered Democrat, I consider myself a fiscal conservative and have worked for candidates and elected officials on both sides of the political aisle."
