Potential Selectman’s Race in Upton

An incumbent and a newcomer have taken out nomination papers for Upton's Board of Selectman's office, increasing the chances of a race for the three year seat. Incumbent Ken Picard, who has been a Selectman for nine years recently announced his intent to run again. And most recently, Gary Daugherty, a career fire lieutenant in Hopkinton as well as a former Call Department Firefighter in town, took out his nomination papers for the Selectmen's position as well. Upton's Annual Town Election is scheduled for May 2.

As of February 23, a number of other incumbents have also taken out their nomination papers for various elected offices and include Dorothy Scally for the three year Mendon Upton Regional School District School Committee, Richard Robinson for the three year seat on the Board of Health, Kathleen Kelley and Judith Katz for the two Library Trustees for three years, Ray Smith for Planning Board for five years, Glenn Fowler for Cemetery Commission for three years, Mildred Galeone for Housing Authority for five years, and Michael Oliver for Trust Fund Commissioner for three years. In addition, Sandra Hakala, James Bates Jr., Michael Moran, and Steven Driver are running for the three year terms for Constable. Newcomer Camille Hamlet has also taken out papers for Library Trustee.

Several elected positions, as of February 23, are still without candidates and include two Assessor's positions; one is for a one year term and the other is for three years. In addition, nomination papers have not been taken out for the Recreation Commission for three years yet.
