Nomination Papers Available for Clarksburg Annual Town Election
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The annual town election will be held on Tuesday, May 29.
There are 10 offices up for election this year, including two seats on the Board of Selectmen.
One of the seats will see its third election in as many years. William G. Schrade was re-elected to the three-year seat in 2016 but had to step down because he moved; last year, Carlyle "Chip" Chesbro Jr. was elected to fill out the last two years of the office but he, too, resigned because of other responsibilities.
The seat will be up for election again to fill out the final year of the term along with the three-year seat currently held by Jeffrey Levanos.
There will also be a vacant seat on the School Committee as John Solari has declined to run for another three-year term. Solari, a retired Drury High School principal, was first elected in 2012 and will complete his second term in May.
Also on the ballot are a five-year term on the Planning Board currently held by Gregory Vigna; three-year library trustee seat held by Debra Bua; three-year term on the Board of Health held by Norman Rolnick; a vacant three-year term as a war memorial trustee; a one-year term as tree warden held by Ernest Dix; and a one-year term as moderator held by Bryan Tanner.
The last day to obtain nomination papers for the annual town election is Friday, April 6. Town Clerk Carol Jammalo will have nomination papers available before and after at Thursday's special town meeting at 6:30 p.m. at Clarksburg School.
Those interested can also make arrangements to obtain papers by leaving a message for Jammalo at 413-663-8255 or ClarksburgTClerk@gmail.com.
