EAST BOSTON ATTORNEY WEIGHING SENATE BID

Lydia Edwards, an attorney with Greater Boston Legal Services, is "leaning towards a run" for Sen. Anthony Petruccelli's seat.

Describing herself as a "long shot" to have risen to her current position, Edwards said if she is able to motivate people who identify with her to vote she will have a "fighting chance" to win. The Democrat and East Boston resident said her mother was in the U.S. Air Force and raised her and her sister on her own after their parents divorced when Edwards was 2 years old.
