ADAMS, Mass. — There will be no contested selectman's race during the annual May election, barring a write-in campaign.
Only current Chairwoman Christine Hoyt had returned nomination papers by the Monday deadline, meaning she will run for her second term unopposed on the ballot.
But there will be a race for a seat on the Hoosac Valley Regional School District Committee as Erin Milne will challenge longtime Adams representative Regina Hill. 
The only other race on the ballot is for two library trustee seats as newcomers Robert Harris and Linda Rhoads will look to unseat incumbent Brian Bishop. Trustee Anita Jamros did not return papers.
McCann School Committee incumbents Bruce Dale Shepley and Daniel Maloney returned papers along with Board of Health incumbents David Rhoads and Laura Grandchamp.
Incumbents also running unopposed will be Assessor George Haddad, Planning Board incumbent David Krzeminski, Cemetery Commissioner Fred Hobart and Town Moderator Myra Wilk.
Incumbent Parks Commissioner Jacob Schutz returned papers but Scott Cernik did not.
Along with the Parks Commission seat there will be two vacant Redevelopment Authority seats and one vacant Housing Authority seat.
There are also 10 open town meeting seats for Precinct 1; 11 in Precincts 2 and 5; and 12 in Precincts 3 and 4.
The deadline to withdraw from the race is April 1 and the deadline to register to vote is April 12.
The election is May 4.
