If you are considering running for office in Southborough, the process has already begun.

Nomination papers are available through noon on Friday, March 20.

To run for office, you need to return forms signed by 44 registered voters by Monday, March 23.

(I hope everyone is turning in their census forms to keep their names on that voter list.)

Here are the seats up for grabs this year:

And here is the political calendar for this election.

Of course, elected positions aren’t the only game in town. There are plenty of appointed boards that currently have vacancies. (Including some who have been pleading for new members.)

Updated (3/2/15 10:20 am): Whoops, I missed one. The Town will also be seeking a one year term member for the Board of Assessors.

Anyone running for high town office should take a position on whether all legal advice and communication received from counsel hired by the town in the Algonquin state funding dispute should be publicly disclosed.

Accountability for that well over $1 million loss needs to be determined.

The Northborough v. Southborough case is closed and the client confidentiality is the townspeople’s to waive.

Continued confidentiality only protects those responsible for this debacle.

Moreover, if the evidence shows the advice of counsel fell below the standard of care the town may be able to recover all or some of that loss.

My understanding is that once the issue is settled, Counsels advice is subject to a public records request. If you want to find out make the request. If it is denied, appeal to the AG.

I for one believe that it should be made public, we paid for it.
