If you’re interested in running for Town Office, you have just one week left to pull nomination papers. The deadline is 5:00 pm on Friday, March 20th to pull papers and March 24th to file them. (If you want to pull papers today, remember that the Town House closes at noon on Fridays.)

Below I’ve shared who has pulled or filed papers to date. There could be some races brewing, but it’s still too early to know. It also looks like there could be a vacancy on the Housing Authority.

Here are the seats are up for grabs in the May 12th election. (Unless otherwise specified, each have one seat available.):

For those of you considering a run, click here to open the Town’s full list of vital dates. If you have questions about the responsibilities of the positions, you can find information here.

Those of you who aren’t planning to run, may still want to note some important dates in our Town democracy. The voter registration deadline is April 22nd at 8:00 pm. And the final day to apply for an absentee ballot is noon on May 11th.

*For the Library Trustees – Three of the candidates pulled papers for all three of the terms listed on the ballot. They seem to have sorted out which seats they are running for by which papers they filed. To avoid confusion, I only listed each once.
