Tisbury voters to choose town clerk, decide override


Tisbury voters go to polls on from 12 noon to 8 pm on Tuesday, May 13, at the Emergency Services Facility on Spring Street. The only contested race is for the office of town clerk.

The town’s finance and advisory committee (FinCom) badly needs write-in candidates. There are five seats to fill, and possibly two more, pending election results for current FinCom members Melinda Loberg and Hillary Conklin. Ms. Loberg is running unopposed for a seat on the board of selectmen. Ms. Conklin is running for town clerk against Barbara Lampson. If elected, they would have to give up their FinCom seats.

The ballot also includes a Prop. 2.5 general override question that asks voters to allow the town to assess an additional $1,296,084 in taxes to fund town and school operating budgets and capital stabilization funds for the fire department, ambulance service, and department of public works. A second non-binding resolution question asks Governor Deval Patrick to shut down Entergy’s Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station in Plymouth.
