Now that Town Meeting is behind us, it’s time to turn our focus to the next part of our democratic process. Southborough’s Town Election is coming up Monday, May 9th.*

The Library Board of Trustees is again hosting their annual Candidates’ Night. The event gives voters the chance to meet candidates and hear what they have to say.

Candidates for contested races get a chance to address the crowd and answer questions.

The Meet & Greet begins at 6:30 pm, followed by 7:00 speeches and Q&A.

This year, there are two contested races: 

Planning Board – vote for one – 5 year term

  • Meme Lutrell, 19 Oregon Rd.
  • Craig Nicholson, 30 Pinecone Lane

(For past coverage on that race, click here.)

Moderator – vote for one – 1 year term

  • Desiree Aselbekian, 137 Woodland Rd.
  • William J. Boland, 35 East Main St.
  • Stephen A. Morreale, 58 Oregon Road

(For past coverage on that race, click here.)

* The bylaw change moving Town elections to Tuesday goes into effect for next year, if Northborough passes it at their Town Meeting on April 25th. It doesn’t affect this year’s election calendar.

Hello everyone,

I am seeking election to serve as the Town Moderator for Southborough. My family has lived in Southborough since 1988 and since our arrival, I have been active in town government volunteering on the Southborough Youth Commission for several years and later serving as a member of the Personnel Board recently leaving as the chair after nearly 15 years. I have served on several town selection boards.

I have been encouraged to seek election as Town Moderator by our current Town Moderator David Coombs. My interest in serving as the Town Moderator is built on my strong belief for public service with absolutely no interest or aspirations for any further or higher elected office at either the Town or state levels. I wish to continue a tradition of independent, open, civil discussion on matters deciding on spending our hard earned taxpayer funds.

I look forward to participating in Candidate’s Night on April 28th and meeting many of my fellow Southborugh residents and concerned citizens.

Thank you.

Steve Morreale
