Leicester-area elections on tap for March 5
LEICESTER/WHITING/GOSHEN — On March 5, Richard Reed will seek re-election to moderator in Leicester, while Diane Benware and Tom Barker will seek re-election to the selectboard for three-year and two-year terms, respectively.
Others seeking re-election in Leicester on Town Meeting Day include Beth Swinington Ripley as delinquent tax collector, and Mike Rakowitz for the positions of Town Grand Juror and Town Agent.
In Whiting, all elected officials are nominated and voted for on the floor during town meeting, according to Town Clerk Gale Quenneville.
“Often, but not always, the incumbent gets voted back in,” she said.
Quenneville said she had not heard of anyone running that is not already an officer, but she said selectboard member Tara Trudo will not be running for re-election.
In Goshen, Dave McKinnon will run for re-election to his seat on the selectboard. McKinnon has been a member of the selectboard for 12 years. No one has offered to run for election to the vacant Goshen seat on the Otter Valley Unified Union School District board of directors.
