WATERBORO – Residents will have three different contested races to decide this year in Waterboro.
Three residents are running for the two, three-year seats on the ballot for the Board of Selectmen. Incumbents Tammy Jo Girard and Chairman Dennis Abbott are seeking re-election, and Finance Committee Chairwoman Tina Cote is also running.
A one-year seat on the board drew only one candidate, Recycling and Transfer Station Committee member David Woodsome.
Regional School Unit 57 Board member Mary Ross is being challenged by Nanette Walton for a three-year term. The other contested race is for road commissioner. Incumbent Fred Fay is not running again, but Waterboro Land Trust President Doug Foglio Sr. and Scott Ohman, who runs G&F Septic with Fay, are vying for the seat.
The only other seat on the ballot is for the water district. Incumbent David Benton Sr. is unopposed.
Town elections will be decided on June 8, the statewide primary election. Residents will also decide on a new sticker trash program designed to boost recycling by requiring residents to pay for stickers for trash bags taken at the transfer station (recyclables are free); and the $33.1 million Regional School Unit 57 school budget.
The primary day election will be held at Massabesic Middle School.
The filing deadline for candidates was April 27.
