Four vie for two spots on Westborough Board of Selectmen

By Bonnie Adams, Managing Editor

Westborough – Four candidates, including two incumbents, will be vying for two spots on the Board of Selectmen in this year’s Annual Town Election to be held Tuesday, March 5.

Incumbents Timothy A. Dodd and Leigh Emery are once again running for a three-year term.  They will be challenged by Stephen J. Faris and Francis W. Sowa.

The only other contested race will be for a three-year on the spot for the Housing Committee. Voters will decide between Jill L. Dupree and William E. Linnane.

Incumbents Bruce Tretter and Stephen C. Doret are both running for another three-year term on the School Committee.

Other candidates who returned papers include: Helena K. Engberg, Library Trustee, three-year term; incumbent Joanne Mallozzi, Planning Board, five-year term; and Charles E. Naples, Housing Authority, five-year term.

There are no candidates for two additional open Library Trustees positions. Residents may win a spot by getting the two highest numbers of votes. If there are no interested candidates, the Board of Selectmen and Library Trustees will appoint two residents to fill the vacancies until the March 2014 Annual Town Election.

The Annual Town Meeting will be held Saturday, March 16 starting at 1:00 p.m. in the Westborough High School auditorium.
