By Walter Brooks

Bristol County District Attorney C. Samuel Sutter will kick off his series of announcements Monday at the Provincetown Town Hall at 9 am followed with a Falmouth meet and greet with residents and deliver a second announcement speech at 11:30 a.m. After that meeting it's on to Plymouth, then New Bedford and Westport and finally home to Fall River as part of a tour to officially announce his candidacy for the 9th Congressional District in the September Democratic Primary against incumbent Bill Keating of Bourne..

The Fall River Democrat will be at Plymouth Town Hall at 2 p.m. Sutter will start his day in Provincetown and finish in with a rally at White’s in Wesport where, according to a press release, there will be speeches by several prominent local Democratic officials.

He spoke at the Wareham Democratic Caucus last weekend. Sam Sutter, pronounced like "Butter," said he is seeking the 9th Congressional Districts seat in Congress which is presently held by fellow Democrat Bill Keating. He is notable in that he's about six-foot-six-inches tall. Sutter pointed out the difficulties of handling Fall River, and was able to show some progress that occurred under his watch.

Most figured with Bill Keating's last primary rival Rob O'Leary out of the race, Sutter would decide to drop out too since the only change of hurting Keating in the September Primary was in the 9th Congressional District being split three ways with O'Leary grabbing the Cape, Keating holding on to the South Shore and Sutter capturing the new towns added to the district which are in Bristol County from Wareham to Fall River.

Sutter told me however that he feels with O'Leary out, he will pick up votes on Cape Cod and the Islands.
