Two file for City Council in Ward 2

LACONIA — Two candidates have filed for the City Council seat in Ward 2 opened by the retirement of Matt Lahey — Richard Beaudoin of Manchester Street and Mark Templeton of Lyman Street.
Beaudoin challenged Lahey in 2011, but in an election marked by very low turnout was beaten 103 to 44. Templeton, a technical service engineer with Electronics for Imaging, Inc. of Meredith, is making his first bid for the council.
