David DiGregorio announced his withdrawal from the race for Southbridge School Committee during tonight’s school committee meeting. Committee members John Jovan and Dr. Tanya Dominko were excused from the meeting. Their absence was unexplained.
DiGregorio filed his papers for the position just before the deadline and therefore his name will still appear on the June 26th ballot. He failed to appear at the recent debate among school committee candidates and offered no explanation for his absence.
During the new business portion of the meeting, Mr. DiGregorio referenced his father as telling him, “Try not to screw things up.”
He went on to say that, after nine years on the committee, new candidates for the council offered new ideas, and he urged voters to support them.
