Election 2015: Third Candidate Steps Up In Library Board Race

Jan 30, 2015 02:28AM ● Published by Bill Gilman

A third potential candidate has emerged in the race for the Library Board of Trustees in the April 2015 Municipal Election.

Lorraine H. Carriere of Hawthorne Circle has taken out nomination papers, joining incumbents Patricia Pino and Paige Impink. What is unclear at this point is whether Carriere intends to challenge Impink and Pino, who are seeking new three-year terms on the board, or if she intends to declare for the two-year term being added to the April ballot due to the resignation of Robert Homeyer earlier this month.

To this point, the only candidates who have returned their nomination papers and had them certified by Town Clerk Denise Graffeo are incumbent Board of Health member Kathleen Brothers, incumbent Selectman David Gay and selectmen challenger Mark Kratman.

Incumbent Selectman Scott Wilson has taken out nomination papers but has yet to decide if he will run. If Wilson seeks re-election, it would create a contested race for the Board of Selectmen. Through Jan. 29, there were no contested races on the April ballot.

However, there is still plenty of time for candidates to get onto the ballot. Candidates have until Feb. 23 to return completed nomination papers to the Town Clerk’s office with valid signatures of at least 50 registered voters.

Here is the list of elected positions up for grabs in the April 11 Tewksbury Municipal Election, along with the incumbents for each position and the status of the potential candidates:
