Who Would You Like to See Run For Town Office This Spring?

The first day to get on the ballot is today, who would you like to see run?


Town Election Day is only four months away as of today, and as of this morning residents can pull nomination papers for the following seats...

  • Board of Selectmen (two seats, three years)
  • School Committee (two seats, three years)
  • Library Trustee (two seats, three years)
  • Board of Health (one seat, three years)
  • Planning Board Associate Member (two seats, three years)
  • Constable (one seat, three years)
  • Chelmsford Housing Authority (one seat, five years)
  • Cemetary Commission (one seat, three years)
  • Town Meeting Member (six seats in each precinct for three years except for 3 and 8, where one of the six is for two years to fill a vacancy)

We'll be checking down at Town Hall to see who's signed up each week, in the meantime, who do you think should run?

How about selectmen candidates that have served on other town committees? Where is this trend of folks running for selectman while plenty of committees in town could use volunteers? Also - where are you at the many public input sessions??

Could it be that we are being taxed out of existence and have inept $$ management in town? Our property taxes came in 5 times higher than estimated even with over $900K in "free cash"! At this point, we're talking about moving out as well! Even with a single tax rate, businesses are still leaving. Then look at a town like Burlington, with a split tax rate, and businesses flock there.

If we don't have a fair property tax rate we will not just lose residences too communities Show there residents the fairness they need also it goes along with why business are leaving town. As People leave the Stores and other business lose money because people have none to spend as its all going to pay the property tax.

It is "to" and "their" and "it's". Louis might not have gone to school in Chelmsford to learn grammar but I did.
