Judge tosses legal challenge to have two Cambridge mayoral candidates disqualified

A legal bid to have two candidates running for mayor of Cambridge disqualified has been thrown out by a judge.

One of seven candidates running for the city’s top job – Sandra Hill – went to court arguing Linda Whetham and Andrew Johnson should not be allowed to run alleging they gave wrong information when they filed their nomination papers about where they lived.

The Record reports, the judge did not buy her argument and the “decision to receive the nominations of the two candidates is reasonable.”

He also ordered Hill to pay $3,000 in legal costs.

In addition to those three candidates, Doug Craig, Paul Tavares, Sardool Bhogal and Harpinder Singh are also running for mayor.
