Felix D. Arroyo tomorrow announces a bid to replace Patty Campatelli as Suffolk County Register of Probate and Family Court.
Campatelli, in her first term in the elected holdover from colonial days, found herself suspended by the Massachusetts Trial Court in January due to an investigation into whether she punched an employee - a charge she denies.
Arroyo the elder was a Boston city councilor until 2007. In a mailing to potential supporters, he writes:
I have dedicated my life to public service with an emphasis on children and families. As your Register of Probate & Family Court, I will work to make sure that everyone is treated with the respect and dignity they deserve. I am asking for your vote and support so that I can continue my life's work.
The mailing he sent to potential supporters came from felixarroyo.com, which, on the Web, still redirects you to the mayoral campaign of his son, who is now the city's chief of health and human services.
