Deadline nears for town election

Candidates for the April 2 Norwood town election must get their nomination papers in by Feb. 12.

Selectman William Plasko has returned his papers as he looks to retain his seat, the only one on the five-member Board of Selectmen up for election this year, according to Assistant Town Clerk Mary Lou Folan.

On the School Committee, Patrick McDonough is running for reelection for a second term after winning three years ago when he was a senior at Norwood High School. His is the only seat there that is up for contest this year on that committee.


Other seats to be listed on the ballot include those for town moderator, Board of Health, Planning Board, Finance Commission, library trustee, and the Housing Authority.
