No-contest election


There are no contested races in the April 9 town election, according to Town Clerk Jean Kopke, and three spots on the ballot will be empty because no one filed papers to run for them. “Pretty much just the incumbents are running, and none of them have opposition,” Kopke said. For the seats where incumbents decided against running, only one person stepped up to each opening, she said. Despite the lack of competition for elected offices, Kopke said another matter on the ballot should draw voters: a debt exclusion question that would allow the town to spend $1.5 million on a new parking lot at Butler Elementary School.
