He joins fellow incumbent Christine Kinnon and challenger James M. Killion in the race for two 3-year slots on the board. Kinnon has already returned her nomination papers and is on the ballot. In the meantime, the Board of Health will have at least one new member, after Ed Sheehan announced his resignation last week. Now, a special two-year slot will be added to the ballot to fill the remaining years on Sheehan's term. No one has…
