Camden doesn’t have enough candidates running to fill open positions

By Stephen Betts, BDN Staff

CAMDEN, Maine — With a little more than three weeks to go before the deadline for candidates to make the June municipal ballot, there are fewer people seeking seats than there are positions.

Nomination papers have been available for a month but there still is only one person running for two open seats on the Select Board and one for two open seats on the school board.

Incumbent John French Jr. has taken out nomination papers to serve another three-year term on the board. The other incumbent, Morgan Laidlaw, is not seeking re-election.

For the two open seats on the SAD 28 Board, Patricia Libby-Lincoln has taken out papers.

The seats are held by Bob Lawson and Kelly Briggs.

Nomination papers must be returned to the town clerk by 3:30 p.m. April 30.

The election will be held 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 12, at the fire station. The town meeting will begin at 7 p.m. June 13 at the Camden Opera House.
