One contested race this spring


When the deadline to submit nomination papers passed last week, only one race had developed for the April 28 annual town election. Veterans’ Council chairman Joshua Randall; Sheila Whitaker, former vice chairwoman of the town government study committee; and William Rivers, Republican town committee chairman ,will vie for a three-year term as councilor-at-large. Incumbent William Callahan had decided not to run. Two other councilors up for reelection, District 1 Councilor Scott Pitta and District 2 Council Timothy Fitzgibbons, will run unopposed.
