WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — With three weeks left to submit nomination papers for May's town election, no contested races are shaping up for the ballot as of Wednesday afternoon.
For the lone seat on the five-member Select Board, current Chair Jeffrey Johnson is the only person to take out papers, the town clerk reported. Johnson was elected to his initial three-year term on the body in May 2021.
Samantha Page has taken out nominating papers for the one five-year Planning Board seat on the ballot. Last May, Ben Greenfield was elected to fill the final year of an unexpired term after a resignation.
Laila Boucher has taken out papers to retain her seat on the Northern Berkshire Vocational Regional (McCann Technical) School Committee.
And for the Board of Trustees for the Mline Public Library, two residents have pulled papers but one already indicated they do no plan to return them, Town Clerk Nicole Beverly said. Anna Halpin-Healy still appears to be actively pursuing a spot on the ballot.
To date, none of the prospective candidates has returned papers.
The nomination papers are available at the town clerk's office at the Municipal Building. The deadline to return papers with the required number of signatures from town voters is 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 26.
