Town Election: Board of Health now uncontested (and don’t forget Candidates Night is Wed)

Another candidate has pulled out of a race for Town Election. Rose Mauro will be on the town ballot for Board of Health this spring. But she is publicly asking voters not to select it.

Mauro asked me to share this message with readers:

After much consideration, I have decided to suspend my campaign for the Board of Health.  I am involved this year on a couple of important state health initiatives and don’t believe I will have enough time to do the job well.  I’ve spoken to my opponent Dan O’Rourke and he is very enthusiastic about getting involved.  I think he would do a great job. I appreciated the opportunity to meet the current board and our very knowledgable and committed town employees and I hope I will have an opportunity to work with them at a later date. I hope you all will continue to support them and the important work they do to keep us all safe and healthy.

That means the lineup of presenters at Wednesday’s Candidates Night has just shrunk by two. The evening will now focus on the two remaining races: 

Town Clerk – vote for one – 2 year term
James F. Hegarty, 14 Maplecrest Drive
Doriann M. Jasinski, 33 Presidential Drive

Board of Selectmen – vote for one – 3 year term
William J. Boland, 35 East Main Street (candidate for re-election)
Desiree Aselbekian, 137 Woodland Road
Brian E. Shea, 17 Pinecone Lane

Tomorrow night at the library, residents can hear what the candidates have to say and ask their questions. (On the fence about attending? Does knowing there will be refreshments help?)

The meet and greet begins at 6:30 pm and presentations (followed by Q&A) at 6:45 pm. Hope to see you there.

For a list of all candidates and offices, here’s the sample ballot. And don’t forget to save the date of May 11th to cast your vote.
