Five Vying For Adams Board of Selectmen
By Andy McKeever On: 05:12PM / Monday March 19, 2012
ADAMS, Mass. — Five candidates are vying for two seats on the Board of Selectmen and five open seats on other boards have no candidates.

At Monday's deadline for nomination papers, the five candidates that had returned papers were incumbent Arthur "Skip" Harrington, former Selectman Edward Driscoll, and newcomers Richard Blanchard, John Duval and Jeremy Halek. Two others, Donald Sommer and Anthony Coty, had taken out papers but did not return them.

The only other race is for moderator. Incumbent Joseph R. Dean Jr. is being challenged by Ryan Biros.

Five elected positions do not have candidates.

Parks Commissioner Aimee Sinopoli will not be running again and the board was already one position short. Of three open positions on that board, only incumbent James Fassell returned nomination papers.

Two seats on the Redevelopment Authority —  five-year and a two-year — also have no candidates. Incumbent Joseph Allard will not seek re-election, which adds to an already vacant position.

Additionally, Cemetery Commissioner Robert Ciempa is not seeking re-election, creating a vacancy there.

For all other posts, only the incumbents returned election papers. The full list is available below.
