It's been a busy election season so far, with four confirmed races for the 2022 town election -- School Committee, Board of Assessors, Board of Health, and Sewer Commission.
Incumbents School Committee members Elizabeth (Liza) O'Reilly and Carlos A.F. Da Silva; Housing Authority member Greg O'Meara; and Recreation Commissioner Nandita S. Scott are not running for reelection.
There's a four-way race for three School Committee seats among incumbent Nancy (Nes) Correnti, Alyson B. Anderson, Matthew J. Cosman, and Matthew B. LeBretton and a Board of Assessors race between incumbent Carlton A. Chambers and Randall M. Winters.
Current Board of Health member Kirk J. Shilts is being challenged by Rosemary D. Byrne and by Joseph P. Kelly for his sewer commissioner seat.
Town Moderator Michael J. Puzo, Select Board Chair Joseph M. Fisher, Board of Assessors member Christine M. Roberts; and Planning Board member Gordon M. Carr are running for re-election unopposed.
Michael D. Reive is running unopposed for the Municipal Light Board seat earlier vacated by Roger M. Freeman, who resigned, and Michelle Larned is running unopposed for the Housing Authority seat currently held by O'Meara. Stephen P. Buckley is running unopposed for Scott's seat on the Recreation Commission.
