ANDOVER — Nomination papers for the annual town election to be held March 25 now available in Town Clerk Larry Murphy’s office at 36 Bartlet St.
Candidates must gather signatures and turn their nomination papers in by 5 p.m. Feb. 4
People running for office must gather a certain number of signatures of registered voters, depending on the office they are running for, and turn them into the town clerk by the deadline in order to get on the ballot in March.
The ballot for the annual town election will include the following:
Moderator: one, one-year term
Selectman: one, three-year term
School Committee: one, three-year term
Housing Authority: one, five-year term
Trustees of the Punchard Free School: Two, three-year terms
So far, School Committee chairman Dennis Forgue has announced he will not be running for re-election, meaning that seat is open. Former Selectman Ted Teichert said recently he may be interested in running for that seat.
Mary Lyman, a selectman, is running for re-election. Nobody has announced their intention to challenge her.
