DescriptionConcord state representatives and city councilors are reserving judgments about stalking accusations against Rep. Dick Patten until the case goes before a judge.

Patten, a Concord Democratic state representative and city councilor, has been accused of stalking by a 20-year-old Concord man. A judge temporarily granted an order last week that prohibits Patten from contacting or going within 100 yards of the man.

Several of Patten’s colleagues in the state Legislature and Concord City Council said this week that they don’t yet feel comfortable voicing opinions about the situation.

“Well, I’m concerned about the allegations,” said Councilor Mark Coen. “For myself, though, it’s very important to wait until May 10, where a judge is going to hear testimony from both sides.”
