Edgartown voters will see few contests
Edgartown has a few new candidates running for town boards and commissions in the April 12 town election, but most are incumbents running for re-election.
Michael Donaroma, chairman of the selectmen, is running for re-election for a three-year term.
Alan C. Gowell is a candidate for a one-year term on the board of assessors. He is running for the unexpired term of Peter Kipp Clough, who died last year. Mr. Gowell is currently chairman of the affordable housing committee and a member of the resident homesite committee. His term as a cemetery commissioner is expiring.
Another new candidate on the financial advisory committee is Andre J. Mellegol, who is running for the unexpired one-year term of Linda Jackson. Elizabeth M. Cosgrove is running for a three-year term as a library trustee, which is being vacated by Nancy Ambrose.
Other incumbents up for re-election include Edward E. Belisle to the board of assessors, Harold T. Zadeh to the board of health, and Alan Wilson to the planning board.
Two incumbents on the financial advisory committee are running for re-election. They are Fredrick M. Condon and Steven C. Jordan for three-year terms.
Others running for re-election are David B. Rossi for three years on the school committee, Diane T. Bongiorno for three years as a library trustee, and Nancy E. Doyle Shemeth for three years on the park commission.
Other incumbents up for re-election are Martha J. Look for three years on the wastewater treatment commission, John S. Lovewell for three years on the water commission, and Edward W. Vincent Jr. for three years as town representative to the Martha's Vineyard Land Bank Commission.
No one is running for a three-year term for constable. Incumbent Glen Searle, whose term is ending, did not take out nomination papers, town clerk Wanda Williams said. He could run as a write-in candidate. Jonathan Searle is the other constable.
