In Burlington, selectman's race tops election ballot

Continue reading below

A race for two Board of Selectmen seats is among three contests on the ballot of the annual town election Saturday. Polling hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Incumbents Daniel R. Ditucci and Ralph C. Patuto are vying with challengers Virginia E. Mooney and Michael S. Runyan. Mooney is a Town Meeting member who was a selectwoman from 1988 until she was unseated in 1991, and has run unsuccessfully for the board every year since. Runyan is a Burlington firefighter and former Housing Authority member who lost bids for selectman in 2010 and 2011. Three candidates are contending for two Planning Board seats: Neil S. Kane, a member of the Zoning Board of Appeals; John D. Kelly, a Town Meeting member formerly on the Planning Board; and Barbara G. L’Heureux, also a Town Meeting member. There is also a three-way race for two library trustee seats. Contending are incumbents Paula F. Bernard Jr. and Eileen C. Sickler and challenger Janet L. Hurley. Seven candidates, all incumbents, are running unopposed. Also on tap will be the election of 70 Town Meeting members. Eight of those seats drew no ballot candidates. When they stop by their polling places, voters can also help residents in need. People Helping People is conducting a food drive on Election Day for the Burlington Community Food Pantry. Specific needs include toothbrushes, canned fruit and vegetables, and peanut butter. Financial donations also are welcome. -John Laidler
