WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — With a Tuesday deadline looming to submit completed nomination papers, all of the seats on May's town election ballot have one interested party.
Papers have been completed with the required number of signatures for five of the seven seats on the ballot. Potential candidates have taken out papers for the other two seats, Town Clerk Mary Kennedy reported on Thursday morning.
Nomination papers are available in Kennedy's office. Completed nomination papers must be returned to the Board of Registrars for certification no later than Tuesday, March 21.
For the Board of Selectmen, incumbents Hugh Daley and Andrew Hogeland each have returned papers and the signatures have been certified.
The same goes for Chris Winters, the incumbent candidate for the one Planning Board seat on the ballot.
One incumbent, Karen Kowitz, has taken out papers for one of the two available three-year seats on the Milne Library Board of Trustees. Newcomer Patricia Wilk has returned her papers for the second seat.
There will be a third library trustee position on the ballot, a two-year seat to fill out an unexpired term. Mary Alcott Ferger has returned nomination papers to fill that spot.
There will be one new member of the Williamstown Elementary School Committee with John Skavlem choosing not to seek another term. To date, one potential candidate, Caitlin Lopez, has taken out papers.
Offices on the ballot are two Selectmen seats for three-year terms, one School Committee member for a three-year term; two library trustees for three-year terms, one library trustee for a two-year term and one Planning Board member for a five-year term.

The annual town election takes place Tuesday, May 9, at the elementary school.
