The Dorchester Reporter reports that Scaccia, the longest serving member of the House of Representatives, will retire at the end of the year.
Gretchen Van Ness, who split the progressive vote two years ago with Segun Idowu in 2018, has already announced her candidacy for the Democratic nomination. The Reporter says that former City Councilor Rob Consalvo, of the Scaccia/Murphy wing of the local party, is also running.
The district includes Hyde Park and parts of Roslindale and West Roxbury.
