March 22, 2018

The process to nominate candidates for Town government offices is underway.

The process to nominate candidates for Town government offices is underway. At this moment, we might have real competition for three positions and no candidate at all for Board of Health. The filing date is not until April 3, 2018, so that could change. As of March 19th, the following have taken out papers for:

Board of Assessors. One seat. Three-year term.
Lesley Kennally 
 

Board of Health.  One seat. Three-year term

            __________________________________

Any Holliston registered voter can take out papers for nomination to any office listed. Candidates need 50 signatures of Holliston registered voters to get on the ballot, but it is best to collect a few more in case the Town Clerk, for some reason, does not certify a signature.

The signature papers must be submitted by April 3, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. PLEASE NOTE the 5:00 p.m. deadline. The Clerk’s office is open until later that evening, but papers MUST be filed by 5:00 to comply with state law.

The Town Clerk will provide prospective candidates with a packet of information about the process. The Town Election is May 22, 2018.

Town Meeting, which is officially Part I of the annual process, is on May 7th at 7:30 p.m.  We need a quorum of 100 people to decide how to spend a budget that will likely be over $60,000,000.
