Typically, this time of year is known for Selectboard and Representative Town Meeting candidates gathering signatures and starting their campaigns.
This year is different, according to Town Clerk Annette Cappy. Only one petition has been taken out and returned.
So far, there is only One Candidate for Three Open Brattleboro Selectboard Seats
With three open seats on the Selectboard (Dick, Dora, and Chris are stepping down), only David Cadran has gathered signatures thus far and will be running for a one-year seat. If elected he’ll join Ken Schneck and David Gartenstein on the board.
That leaves two Selectboard seats (three, if enough candidates care to run) and numerous Representative Town Meeting member positions available to be filled. Petitions are due to the Town Clerk by January 28th.
Stop in the Town Clerk’s office on the first floor of the Municipal Center on Main Street to find out more about how you could run for an elected position in Brattleboro.
