n a late-morning impromptu interview with the News Service and a Boston Globe reporter, Tarr indicated he'll make his decision by Friday, if not sooner.
Tarr described himself as "a bit overwhelmed" by the response to his potential candidacy. "It's been very encouraging," he said.
Tarr also acknowledged former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan may join a Republican primary field that currently features businessman Gabriel Gomez of Cohasset and Rep. Dan Winslow of Norfolk. A state representative from Abington from 1991 until 1995, Sullivan served as Plymouth County District Attorney from 1995 until 2001. Currently a partner at Ashcroft Law Firm, Sullivan before his public service career practiced law and worked for 16 years at Gillette, where he started out as a stock clerk.
Sullivan has not returned calls from the News Service.
