Two Sudbury residents have pulled papers for the March 25 Annual Town Election with the hope of joining the Sudbury Public Schools Committee.
One of those residents is Scott Nassa, who lost out in his bid two years ago to current members Chair Rich Robison and Ellen Winer Joachim.
"I can confirm that I have pulled papers, gathered the necessary signatures and will submit them to the Town Clerk's office this week," Nassa told Sudbury Patch in an email
The other resident challenging for SPS Committee is Matthew Barach.
They are vying for Vice Chair Lisa Gutch's seat. As of 9 a.m., today, she had not pulled papers for re-election, Town Clerk Rosemary Harvell said.
"Residents have until Feb. 1 at 5 p.m. to pull papers," she said.
Among the incumbents who have pulled papers so far is Board of Selectmen Vice Chair Bob Haarde.
Haarde's seat is the lone seat available this year. Haarde was a key figure in the investigation into last year's Lavendergate scandal.
Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School board members Kevin Matthews and Radha Gargeya have also pulled papers for re-election, as has Goodnow Library Trustee Carol Hull.
Martin Long is vying for the Planning Board.
Richard Williamson has pulled papers for Park and Recreation.
Harvel said candidates have until Feb. 5 at 5 p.m. to return their signed papers to the Town Clerk’s office.
