Friendship residents to vote on selectman, school board seats

FRIENDSHIP, Maine — There will be a contested race for a single selectman’s seat but no one wants to serve on the regional school board.

The deadline for making the municipal ballot passed last week.

Raymond Brann and David Benner will be on the ballot for a single three-year seat to the Board of Selectmen. The winner will succeed incumbent Earl Bachelder who did not seek re-election.

There are no candidates for the town’s open seat on the Regional School Unit 40 Board. The seat is held by incumbent Mary Genthner who did not seek re-election. Friendship has two representatives on the 16-member school board but the other seat is not up for election until 2015.

The spot can be filled by whoever gets the most write-in votes.

Incumbent Assessor Victor Motyka is unopposed for re-election to that board.

The municipal election is Monday, March 18, with the polls open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the town office. The town meeting is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 19, at the Hahn Community Center.

The warrant for the town meeting is still being developed.
