Time Winding Down For Potential Candidates

Those wishing to appear on the April ballot must return nomination papers by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 19.

With just over 48 hours remain for potential candidates to return nomination papers to the Town Clerk's Office to secure a place on the April 6 ballot, there are still some noteable names in the "maybe" column.

Candidates have until 5 p.m. on Feb. 19 to return nomination papers with at least 50 valid signatures of registered Tewskbury voters.

There are guaranteed to be several contested races on the ballot, including Board of Selectman, Board of Health (both 3-year and 2-year terms) and School Committee. But there are still some intresting questions to be answered in the next two days.

Planning Board: Incumbent Robert Fowler is the only potential candidate to take out nomination papers but has yet to return them. If he fails to do so, the race could be decided by write-in votes.

Shawsheen Tech School Committee: Incumbent Patrticia Meuse is already on the ballot. Former Tewksbury School Committee member Richard O'Neil has taken out nomination papers and could be a formidable foe but he has yet to return those papers.

Board of Selectmen: There is already a five-person race guaranteed for the two seats up for grab. However, it could turn into a seven-person race if Robert Marcin and Robert Rosa turn in their nomination papers by Tuesday's deadline.

Stay tuned.
