 Town elections are a few months away, but now is the time to prepare.

There are 14 positions up for election. Consider how you could serve our town in one of these important elected postions.

Nomination papers to run for elected office in Holliston will be available on February 3, 2014, at the Town Clerk's office in Town Hall.

This is a great opportunity to help your community. Running for a Town Office
and sharing your knowledge and expertise is a very rewarding and enlightening
experience. Holliston is dependent on volunteers, which is one of the reasons it is such a great place to live. Some offices require more time than others, but please think about giving back to the community.

The following is a list of the offices that are available this year:      
              

                Board of Selectmen                        3 year term     1 position
                Board of Assessors                         3 year term     1 position
                Finance Committee                         3 year term     2 positions
                Finance Committee                         1 year term     1 position
                Board of Health                               3 year term     1 position
                Housing Authority                            5 year term     1 position
                Trustee of Public Library                   3 year term     2 positions
                Park Commissioner                          3 year term     1 position
                Planning Board                                 5 year term     1 position
                Planning Board                                 2 year term     1 position
                School Committee                           3 year term     2 positions
                Water Commissioner                        3 year term     1 position
 

In order to run for public office a person must be at least 18 years old, be a registered voter in town and collect 50 signatures from registered voters by April 1, 2014. The Town
Election is May 20, 2014. 

We would be happy to prepare your Nomination Papers ahead of time; just call the Town
Clerk's Office. 

If you would like to discuss the possibilities, my office is open 8:30 to 4:30 M, W, TH,
8:30 to 7:00 T, 8:30-1:00 F
 

Town Elections are non-partisan.

I am running for re-election to the Holliston Board of Assessors.

What I like about Holliston is that our elections are non partisan so no one has to be a member of any political party or even have a lot of money to become a candidate for local elected office. This could be the entry level position for a life long career in politics and public service.
