St. Albans seeks candidates for budget committee

By Alex Barber, BDN Staff

ST ALBANS, Maine — St. Albans is seeking residents to run for its budget committee.

The terms of three budget committee members are expiring and only two members have taken out nomination papers.

Thomas Roach has decided not to run again, said Town Clerk Stacey Desrosiers.

Members Ellen Bridge and Paul Dube have taken out papers seeking re-election.

Four other town positions will be up for election in March.

The selectman’s position held by Hiram Weymouth is up for re-election. Also the positions of road commissioner now held by Ronnie Finson, town clerk and RSU 19 school director position now held by Patricia Gallison are up for election. Finson, Desrosiers and Gallison have taken out nomination papers for re-election.

All nomination papers must be returned by Tuesday, Jan. 17. Anyone interested in running should call the town office at 938-4568.

The March 2 municipal election will have a new closing time. The polls will open as usual at 8 a.m., but will close at 7 p.m.

“It usually seems like after a certain point, 6:30 [p.m.] or so, we hardly have any voters. We’re just going to try [the new time for this election],” said Desrosiers.

Correction: A previous version of this story said Brady Snowman was road commissioner. Ronnie Finson is road commissioner.
