Raynham

27-year old selectman to run for third term

Continue reading below

Nomination papers for local elected offices became available last week, and Selectman Joseph Pacheco wasted no time announcing his plans for a third  run.  Pacheco became the youngest selectman in the town’s history when he won the seat in 2007 at age 21. The lifelong Raynham resident, who is now 27, describes himself as a fiscal conservative. He pointed out the town has  maintained a level budget during his time on the board, with only one layoff, thanks to some restructuring of employee positions. Asked why he’s running again, Pacheco said, “There’s still a lot of stuff I want to do.” He pointed out Raynham-Taunton Greyhound Park’s plan to apply for a slot parlor license. “I support it and I want to be part of the negotiations,” he said.  Other goals include improving town roads and bringing development to the local industrial park. This year's annual election is set for April 27.
