HARVARD - Town voters placed their ballot nominations for various town positions at the town caucus on Saturday, nominating 23 people for 20 positions.
Only nominees in two committees will have to vie for a spot. Beth Williams, John Lee and Tina Allen are candidates for the Community Preservation Committee, which has two positions open. Meanwhile, the Parks and Recreation Commission has current member Anne McWaters, Wyona Lynch-McWhite and Steve Victorson as candidates for two open positions. Both committee positions serve three-year terms.
Current Constable Kerry Curley and Gregory Newman are also up against each other for the single, three-year constable position.
The rest of Saturday's nominations should not require much competition, leaving just enough nominees for the number of open spots.
Current Selectmen Marie Sobalvarro and Ronald Ricci were nominated for the two open positions in the Board of Selectmen, both set at three-year terms.
A number of officials are the only ones up for re-election to fill their seat. John Spero, whose term as a cemetery commissioner expired in 2014, is the sole nominee for the same open three-year position. Current Tree Warden Christian Bilodeau is also up for re-election for the one-year seat, as is Robert Eubank for town moderator. Current Board of Health Chair Thomas Philippou is also up for re-election for another three-year term.
Library Trustees Gail Coolidge and Charles Redinger, whose terms end in 2014, are also both up for the two three-year seats.
Current Parks and Recreation Commission Member Steven Gordon is also the sole nominee for the only position on the commission carrying a one-year term. The Planning Board has two openings, with current member Erin McBee up for re-election and Don Graham as the other candidate.
SusanMary Redinger, current chair of the School Committee, was nominated for the committee again this year along with Maureen Babcock.
Babcock, however, did not want to run for school committee, said Town Clerk Janet Vellante. After Saturday's caucus, Jennifer Bedford pulled papers for the position and will be on the ballot instead. Both school committee positions last three years.
Current Warner Free Lecture Trustee Mary Maxwell is up for re-election for one of the two vacant three-year positions, along with Lisa Foley.
These names will land on the ballot at the Annual Town Election on April 8.
