The Shrewsbury Board of Selectmen, at their Feb. 9 meeting, voted to move the annual town election date forward to April 30 to coincide with the special state primary for the US Senate seat formerly held by John Kerry. Nomination papers for open town offices are still available at the town clerk's office. Nominations need to be accompanied by 50 endorsing signatures from Shrewsbury voters and be returned to the office by 5 p.m. on March 12 for certification. Two board members whose terms are expiring, John Lebeaux and Moira Miller, are currently running for reelection unopposed. Challenger Nicholas L. Soutter, is no longer in the race. There are two open seats on the School Committee. Dale Magee whose term expires in May, along with that of Erin Canzano, will be running for reelection. At press time, Canzano had not formally announced her intentions. One challenger, Dan Zuba, will also be running for School Committee. He currently serves on the Shrewsbury Youth Soccer Board and the Coolidge School Council. Melissa C. Byrne, Beth N. Casavant, Nancy P. Gilbert, and Frances Whitney are all running for three open Library Trustee seats, each with a three-year term. Anthony D. Cultrera is currently running unopposed for a five-year term on the Shrewsbury Housing Authority. Voters will also be asked to choose Town Meeting members for all 10 precincts in town.
