One contested race in election


There likely won’t be a huge turnout Monday for Lakeville’s annual election, officials said, with just one contested race on the ballot. In the race for a three-year seat on the board of assessors, incumbent Paul F. Meleedy is being challenged by M. John Olivieri. Despite the lack of candidates facing off, there will be changes in town government: Aaron P. Burke, current town moderator, is the only one running for selectman for the seat being vacated by Derek A. Maksy, who is not running for reelection. Taking Burke’s place in all likelihood will be Norman J. Orrall, the sole seeker of the moderator’s position. There are 7,258 registered voters in town, said Town Clerk Janet Tracy, adding that turnout Monday will “probably be very light.”
