Open slots for town officers: Town caucus March 20
Selectman and town moderator are just two of the prominent town offices for which candidates will be sought for election this year. The first formal step in the process, the town caucus, will be held on Monday, March 20, at Town Hall beginning at 7:30 p.m. and lasting just long enough to hear nominations for candidates interested in running for election on May 9.
In order to qualify, a candidate must be a registered voter in Carlisle. Those who decide at a later date to run for office have until 5 p.m. on March 27 to submit to the town clerk nomination papers which include a statement of intention and the signatures of at least 20 Carlisle voters. After that date a resident may run as a "write-in" candidate and no nomination papers are required.
The town will be looking to fill the following offices. Unless otherwise indicated, the terms for the following officials are expiring and they have not announced their intentions for the upcoming election.
Moderator (one for one year) - currently held by Marshall Simonds who will not seek re-election
