WESCO District Manager Running for Office in Massachusetts

Brian Herr, district manager for WESCO Distribution Inc. in New England, is running for the Republican nomination for U.S. Representative for Massachusetts' 3rd Districtin a Sept. 14 primary. The winner of the primary will run against incumbent U.S. Rep. James P. McGovern, D-Worcester, in the Nov. 2 election. The 26-year WESCO veteran says if elected he will bring the same fiscal responsibility he uses to manage $50 million in sales to Congress.

When I met Herr nine years ago during a dinner at an Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC) conference in Las Vegas, I learned that in addition to his interest in politics he is an avid marathon runner. According to an article on his candidacy in Worcester's Telegram & Gazette, he has run 21 marathons for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
