Scott Nichols, candidate for selectman in the town of Adams, announced his campaign committee on Sunday.
"I am extremely excited by the overwhelming support I have received since I announced my candidacy," said Nichols. "For the past couple of years, I have had a number of people in the community encourage me to run again for office. With Joe Dean stepping down after many years of distinguished service on the Board of Selectmen, I felt the timing was right."
Noelle Pandell is the chairman of Nichols'campaign committee and Jim Fassell will serve as treasurer. Additional campaign committee members are Don Wright, Carol Corrigan, Norm Schutz, Jim Waltermire and Larry Pandell.
"I would like to thank the Maple Grove Civic Club for hosting the open forum to allow all candidates to express their views on a number of topics," said Nichols, who participated in the Sunday event.
