NORTHBOROUGH – Select Board member Kristen Wixted will not be seeking another term on the board when her seat is up for election this May.
Wixted made the announcement during the board’s Jan. 22 meeting.
“I just want to say that having a seat on this board has been both exciting as well as tedious while also being surprising, predictable and sometimes much cooler than I ever expected,” she said.
Wixted was elected to the Select Board in 2021. According to her candidate profile, she writes and edits children’s books in addition to volunteering for various organizations and projects. She worked on the “Save Bartlett” campaign, and said she was running for office because she realized it was a concern for people all over town.
Northborough’s election is scheduled for May 14. Nomination papers are currently available and must be obtained by March 8.
