Several seats open for candidates


Despite the addition of a couple of new faces on the ballot for the May 17 town election, there are still a couple of seats with no candidates, according to the town clerk’s office. While moderator Michael F. Hayes has declined to run for reelection, Michael Seele has stepped forward to take out nomination papers. The Whitman-Hanson Regional School District Committee has two seats up for election, but so far only incumbent Michael Minchello has pulled nomination papers. The other incumbent, Stacey M. Dowd, will not seek reelection. In the race for selectmen, incumbents Carl F. Kowalski and Lisa M. Green have taken out nomination papers. No one has yet come forward to seek an open spot on the Planning Board. Ann Trotta is a newcomer who has pulled papers for a library trustee position. Candidates have until March 31 to collect 50 valid signatures.
