Salem Board Members File For Re-Election in Droves
Over a dozen have signed up for the town and school ballots.
With the candidacy filing deadline just two days away, most of the residents who have signed up for the town and school ballots are those seeking re-election to various boards.
The lone candidate thus far for the Board of Selectmen is Chairman Pat Hargreaves, who filed shortly after the period opened.
Planning Board member Linda Harvey has also filed to try to keep her seat. Edward DeClercq, who filled a vacancy last April when Jim Keller was voted in as a selectman, will also seek a fresh three-year term.
Also searching for one of the Planning Board vacancies is Albert McDonald.
Zoning Board of Adjustment candidates include John J. Manning Jr., who is currently an alternate, and Arthur Nobrega. A vacancy was left on the board after former member Patrick McDougall resigned.
McDougall also left a one-year term vacancy on the Budget Committee, which Steven Plant and Ressell Frydryk will seek to fill.
Trustee of the Trust Funds Chairman Harley Featherston will also run for another term.
Three have also filed for Salem School Board, with Patricia Corbett and Peter A. Morgan seeking re-election. Along with his ZBA candidacy, Manning will also seek a term on the board.
Mark Pearson also also filed for another term as School District Moderator.
