The ballot is crowded for the June 2 election, with six people running for two seats on the Board of Selectmen and five people vying for three School Committee spots. “There’s an override question on the ballot, so it heightens interest,’’ said Town Clerk Ron Fucile. The $3 million override would provide an extra $2.7 million for schools and $300,000 to the municipal side of the budget, he said. The selectmen candidates are incumbents Nancy Mackenzie and Christopher Timson, former selectman William Hamilton, Russell Jones, and Robert Luce. Jr. Christine Coury, Jennifer Geosits, and Patrick Shield are competing for two three-year terms on the School Committee. Mark Breen and John C. Sheehan are competing for a vacant one-year term. - Johanna Seltz
