Annual election season quiet
With just two weeks remaining for prospective candidates to draw nomination papers for local office, it appears the April 28 town election may be rather quiet. To date, only one candidate, political newcomer James Burns, has drawn papers for the available three-year term on the Board of Selectmen. Longtime selectman Donald McKinnon recently announced he would not pursue another term. The only possible contest at this point is a two-person race for a term as cemetery commissioner. Incumbent Barbara Leonard-Sleezer has already filed her papers with the required signatures. Resident David Yelle drew papers to challenge Leonard-Sleezer, but has not returned them to the town clerk’s office. Nomination papers will be available until March 8 and must be submitted to the clerk by March 12.
