Reil Will Seek Re-Election for Mendon Selectman’s Seat

Mendon's Annual Town Election has been scheduled for May 17 and that means it's time for candidates to start preparing. Residents interested in running for office can pick up their nomination papers beginning February 16 in the Town Clerk's office.

In total, 11 offices are up for re-election including the three year Board of Selectman's seat. Incumbent Mark Reil said he plans to seek office once again. "Absolutely, I plan on running again," he said. "I think we've been making some strides in Mendon and moving in the right direction." The Selectman Chair said when he first took the Selectman's seat approximately three years ago there was a definite learning curve. "Now, I've got a grasp on things and want to continue on."

Other seats up for re-election and their current officeholders include: Moderator for one year, Jay Byer; Board of Health for three years, Andrew Fiske; Assessor for three years, Kenneth O'Brien; Park Commissioner for three years, Allan J. Byrne, Jr.; Water Commissioner for three years, Dwight Watson; two Taft Public Library Trustees for three years, Amy Fahey and Sharron Luttrell; Mendon-Upton Regional School District Committee for three years, Diane Duncan; Planning Board for five years, William Ambrosino; and Tree Warden for three years, Howard Phipps.

All candidates must turn in their completed nomination papers to the Town Clerk by Tuesday, March 29 at 5 p.m. All candidates need 25 signatures from registered Mendon voters. Those signing nomination papers must sign in person as registered or substantially as registered with their current Mendon address (no P.O. boxes). Registered voters may sign more than one nomination paper for the same office. The last day for candidates to withdraw from the election is April 12. Candidates may begin displaying political signs on April 17, and all signs must be taken down by May 22.

Residents who have not already registered to vote may do so in the Town Clerk's office during regular office hours, in any town clerk's office in Massachusetts, at the Registry of Motor Vehicles, at certain state agencies or by using the mail-in registration form. The mail-in form is available at the Mendon Post Office, Taft Public Library, or at any town or city hall in Massachusetts.

The last day to register to vote in the Town Election or the Annual Town Meeting, scheduled for May 6, is April 15. The Town Clerk's office will have extended hours that day from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. The last day to obtain an absentee ballot is May 16 by 12 p.m. Those with questions on their voter registration status may contact the Town Clerk's office at 508-473-1085 or email
