11th Hour Candidate Creates One Contested Race For Tewksbury Election

Feb 24, 2015 04:41PM ● By Bill Gilman
The ballot for Tewksbury's April 11 Municipal Election is now set and the last minute addition of a new candidate has prevented the election from being entirely uncontested for the first time in at least a decade.
Keith Anderson of Pleasant Street took out nomination papers for a seat on the Planning Board on Friday, Feb. 20. He managed to get the signatures of 50 registered voters and get the papers turned into the Town Clerk's office before the deadline of 5 p.m., Monday, Feb. 23.
Anderson will face George Ferdinand of Pratt Street for a 5-year-term on the board. The seat is presently held by David Plunkett, who announced earlier this year he would not be seeking re-election.
Aside from the Planning Board race, the remaining positions on the ballot are officially uncontested. This means, barring a successful sticker campaign, the candidates listed on the ballot will win those positions by default.
