We're still in 2013, but the 2014 election season is starting to heat up.
According to Natick's Town Clerk office, as of the morning of Dec. 4, Ian Wong has pulled papers to run for Board of Health, while incumbents Dirk Coburn and incumbent Amy Mistrot, and challenger Timothy Kelley have committed to run for school committee.
During the Dec. 2 Board of Selectmen's meeting, Martin Alintuck told Natick Patch he has pulled papers for the Selectmen's race.
Annual Town Election is March 25.
Natick voters will elect two residents for Board of Selectmen and two for the School Committee for three-year terms. Selectman Chair Carol Gloff announced earlier this year she is not seeking another term. The other selectman, former Police Chief Nick Mabardy, has yet to decide to run for re-election.
Residents will also vote for:
- one Board of Assessors seat for a three-year term;
- one Planning Board seat for a five-year term;
- one associate Planning Board seat for a five-year term;
- one Board of Health seat for a three-year term;
- one Housing Authority seat for a five-year term;
- one Housing Authority seat for a two-year term;
- two Recreation and Parks Commission seats for three-year terms;
- 66 Town Meeting seats.
Candidates for town-wide offices must return papers by 5 p.m. on Jan. 7. Papers for new Town Meeting members are due Feb. 4.
