SEEKONK - There will be four candidates vying for two seats on the
board of selectmen for the April 6 election. Selectmen John Turner
and John Whelan are running for re-election. Their current three-year
terms will expire in April.
Town Moderator Dave Parker, the husband of town clerk Jan Parker,
also is running for the board, along with Victoria Kinniburgh, the
wife of Veterans Agent and former Selectman Don Kinniburgh.
The school committee will have three candidates competing for two
open seats. Newcomers Mitch Viera and David Abbott are running
against incumbent John Bilodeau.
John Pozzi, Jr. and Paul Buckley are competing for a seat on the
board of assessors.
Brad Read, Christine Allen, and Christopher Halkyard are competing
for one open seat on the board of water commissioners. William Rice
and Ron Bennett are running unopposed for two open planning board
seats. The deadline for candidates to return papers was 5 p.m.
Richard Perry and Sharon Connors are unopposed for two open seats on
the library board of trustees.
If you are running for a position in Seekonk this spring then feel free to drop in and post a little about yourself in this thread.
This a great Town because so many people volunteer their time to making it that way. If you don't have the time to volunteer then don't forget to vote. Make your voice count
