Town elections pushed back


The Board of Selectmen unanimously voted last week to change the date for town elections to coincide with the primary to fill the US Senate seat formerly held by John Kerry. Instead of going to the polls on the second Saturday in April, Rockland residents will vote for town government positions on April 30. The date change will save the town as much as $10,000, according to Town Administrator Allan Chiocca. Selectman Edward Kimball said there was no public input against changing the date at the board’s meeting.
