DiCara to Run

By Andrew S. Davidson

Boston City Councilor Lawrence S. DiCara '71 will run for the Democratic nomination for State Treasurer against incumbent Robert Q. Crane, DiCara said yesterday.

A Harvard undergraduate, Mark Roosevelt '78, will be DiCara's campaign manager. Although it is "highly unusual" to have a college student running a campaign, DiCara said yesterday that Roosevelt is "the brightest, hottest piece of political equipment available."

DiCara believes the upcoming campaign will be the "classic political contest." It will be a contest between "different generations and different attitudes," he said. The average age of DiCara's campaign staff will be in the mid-20s, he said Crane has been State Treasurer for 14 years.
