Town elections are TODAY – Don’t forget to get to the polls

Southborough residents will make their choice today in two hotly contested races. What started off as a low-key race, didn’t stay that way as incumbent Bill Boland and challenger Leo Bartolini vie for a seat on the Board of Selectmen. The race has been the focus of much discussion here on the blog and elsewhere since late last week. Whether the debate translates into a big turnout at the polls (I hope so) remains to be seen.

In Southborough’s only other contested race, Andrew Mills and Sam Stivers are both trying for a single 1-year seat on the Planning Board. Mills has been sitting on the board since he was appointed late last spring after member Mary Hynes retired. Stivers was the former chairman of the Zoning Board of Appeals.

Polls opened at 8:00 am and will remain open until 8:00 pm, so don’t forget to get out and vote. Need to know where to vote or who else is on the ballot? Check out this post.

I’ll have the election results tonight as soon as they’re available, so be sure to check back later.

Re: The Election

I hope the school committee encumbants and the NB/SB school committee encumbants got the message. The school committee vote had 1059 BLANKS!!!! The NB/SB school vote had 1019 BLANKS!!!
The message should be ” stop approving unsustainable school contracts” please don’t mention this years .6% increase which is a temporary anomaly and not the result of any attempt at serious budget reductions.

Another message, open up your meetings. Let attendees speak. Respond to questions.

If we were allowed to bet, my money would be on “the BOE did not get the message” and I doubt any would bet against me.

I think the message is – Why waste time filling in circles when there is no contest?
