Staff ReportsPrint Story | Email Story
LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — There is little doing this election season so far.
As of Wednesday afternoon, nomination papers for office had been taken out by only five candidates, four of whom are incumbents.
Henry "Hank" Sayers has returned papers for another three-year seat on the Board of Selectmen; Regina DiLego returned papers to return to the School Committee for three more years; Robert Reilly is seeking a one-year seat as moderator, and Sherri Wilson is seeking to return as a library trustee for three more years.
The only newcomer would be Tom Mierzejewski, who took out papers but hasn't returned them for the Finance Committee. Incumbent Finance Committee member Christine Galib has not taken out nomination papers to run for re-election. 
There has not been anybody taking out papers for a four-year seat on the Planning Board, which would be that of Jeff DeChaine. Nor has anyone taken out papers for the Cemetery Commission for three years, a seat held by Amy Szczepaniak. 
Nomination papers are due by May 2. The annual town election is scheduled for Tuesday, June 20.
