WALDOBORO, Maine — Residents will have multiple choices when they go to the polls on June 12 to elect a majority of members to the Board of Selectmen.

Five people have returned nomination papers and another two have taken out papers for a pair of three-year seats on the Board of Selectmen. Two people have returned papers for a single two-year term on the board.

For the selectmen’s seats, incumbent Theodore “Ted” Wooster has returned papers. The other incumbent, Rebecca “Becky” Maxwell, is not seeking re-election. Wooster will be challenged by Carl Cunningham Jr., Ronald Miller, Stephen Nutter and Melvin Williams. Susan Price and John Heller have taken out papers but have yet to return them to qualify for the June 12 municipal ballot.
