WARREN, Maine — There will be a contested race for a selectman’s seat at next month’s municipal election.

But the town is shy a candidate for a school board seat.

Veteran incumbent Selectman Arnold Hill and former Selectman Wayne Luce have returned their nomination papers and qualified for the March 25 ballot for one three-year seat on the Board of Selectmen.

The polls will be open 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday, March 25, at the town office.

Incumbent school board representatives Theodore “Tod” Brown and Maggie Massengale also will be on the ballot. The pair are uncontested for two three-year seats on the Regional School Unit 40 Board.

There were no candidates for the school board seat held by Luce, who is running for a selectman seat. The seat will be filled either by a write-in candidate or by the selectmen if no one wins by write-in.

Warren has four representatives on the 16-member Regional School Unit 40 board. RSU 40 also includes Waldoboro, Union, Washington and Friendship.

The annual town meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 26, at the Warren Community School.
