Early warning on board’s opening


The Board of Selectmen’s chairwoman, Carol Gloff, is hoping that her early decision not to seek reelection will provide plenty of time for residents to consider running for the seat in next spring’s town election. Gloff, who announced her plan during the board’s Oct. 7 meeting, said her battle against viral meningoencephalitis was not a factor, and she has been given a positive bill of health by her doctor. Gloff also said that she hopes to be appointed to another town committee after the March 25 election, although she did not have a particular role in mind. Gloff has served on the Board of Selectmen since 2005, and is in her second stint as its chair. She previously served on the town’s Finance Committee for eight years. Gloff works as a consultant to the pharmaceutical and biotech industries and is a consulting vice president at Embera Neurotherapeutics, a company that develops treatments for various drug addictions.
