In a tradition dating back to 1971, the North Weymouth Civic Association is holding a candidates’ night for everyone seeking election to local office in a crowded field this political season.
Seven candidates are running for five at-large Town Council seats, six people are running for three School Committee seats, and two of six district councilors are facing challengers.
The candidates for the at-large councilor positions are Chris Primiano, Fred Happel Jr., Christopher Heffernan, and Michael Murphy, and incumbents Michael Molisse, Brian McDonald, and Jane Hackett. Incumbents Patrick O’Connor -- now a state senator -- and Robert Conlon are not seeking reelection.
The School Committee candidates are Rebecca Ann Sherlock-Shangraw, Andrea Honore, Matthew Bryer, and incumbents Lisa Belmarsh, Diana Flemer, and Kathleen Curran.
In the races for district councilors, District 1 Councilor Becky Haugh faces challenger Wilson Melon, and District 5 Councilor Ed Harrington faces Joseph Bronske.
The candidates’ night will be held on Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. at Abigail Adams Middle School.
