With five confirmed races -- selectman, town clerk, board of health, municipal light board, and board of assessors -- there's sure to be lots of election season excitement. The date of the election has not yet been decided due to COVID 19-related issues.
Liz Klein, Michelle Larned, and Joseph Kelly are running for Mary Power's selectman seat. Power is not running for reelection.
There's a four-way race for Town Clerk among Libby Lewiecki (current School Committee member), Carol Falvey, Thomas Patch, and Laura Marwill. Town Clerk Eileen McCracken is retiring.
Incumbent Peter Bickford and Johanna Burwell are both running for his health board seat, while Joshua Ross is running for the board of assessors in a race with incumbent Carlton M. ("Al") Chambers.
Laura Burns is challenging John Stoddard, Jr. for his seat on the light board.
Incumbent Kerry Ni and Tim Miller-Dempsey are the candidates for the two School Committee seats (Ni's and Lewiecki's).
Dwight Hartman is the sole candidate for Recreation Commission. Incumbent Bruce Thompson did not take out papers.
Clark Frazier is running unopposed for the sewer commission seat currently occupied by Robert Higgins, who did not pull papers for another term.
Town Moderator Michael Puzo and Planning Board member Gary Tondorf-Dick are running unopposed.
Here's to a busy election season!
