Town Election on April 2

Contests for the Board of Selectmen and the Board of Library Trustees, a ballot question, and the election of all 240 Town Meeting Members will be decided by voters at the April 2 Town Election. In addition, polling places have changed since last year's Town Election.

Newcomer Michael Denice is challenging 30-year veteran Dino DeBartolomeis for a three-year seat on the Board of Selectmen. The top two vote-getters among newcomer A. Tiego da Silva and incumbents Lisa Bacchiocchi and Richard Person will win two, three-year seats as trustees of the Milford Town Library.

Other candidates on the ballot are:

• Samuel Bonasoro (incumbent), three-year seat on the Board of Assessors

• Kenneth Evans (incumbent), three-year term on the Board of Health

• Rudolph Lioce III (incumbent), three-year term on the Board of Sewer

Commissioners

• Joseph Arcudi (incumbent), three-year term on the Park Commission

• John Cook (incumbent), five-year term on the Planning Board

• Scott Harrison, three-year term on the School Committee

• Donald Quattrochio, three-year term on the School Committee

• Michael Walsh (incumbent), three-year term on the School Committee

• Paula Fortin (incumbent), three-year term as Tax Collector

• William Cavazza III (incumbent),

three-year term as Trustee of Vernon Grove Cemetery.

• Maryann Fiske (incumbent), three-year term as Trustee of Vernon Grove Cemetery

[Editor's Note: See the candidate profiles for School Committee candidates in this issue. Profiles of the Selectmen Candidates ran in the March 9 Milford Town Crier and are available online at towncrier.us.]

The ballot question asks voters to accept a state law that would require indemnifying municipal officials for claims against them arising out of their employment [Editor's Note: See separate story in this issue on the ballot question.].

Because the federal 2010 Census showed gains in Milford's population, an eighth voting precinct had to be created, necessitating the election of all 240 elected Town Meeting Members – 30 for each precinct. The top 10 vote-getters in each precinct will be elected to three-year terms as Town Meeting Members, the next highest 10 vote-getters as two-year members, and the third highest 10 vote-getters as one-year members.

Sixty-two Town Meeting Member positions remain open with no candidates. Write-in candidates should notify the Town Clerk's office of their intent to run and "pass the word" to have supporters write in a candidate's correct legal voting name and address. The open ings are: Precinct 1: 12 openings; Precinct 2: nine; Precinct 3: six; Precinct 4: 15; Precinct 5: one; Precinct 6: six; Precinct 7: 10; and, Precinct 8: 3 openings.

The new polling places are:

• Precincts 1 and 4 – Milford Senior Center (previously where Precincts 1 and 3 voted)

• Precincts 2 and 3 – Italian-American War Veterans Hall (previously where Precinct 2 voted)

• Precincts 5,6,7 and 8 – Portuguese Club (previously where Precincts 4,5,6 and 7 voted).

Editor's Note: Election results will be posted at www.towncrier.us as soon as they are available.
