Tisbury selectmen’s race is underway


Two candidates will vie for one seat on the three-member Tisbury board of selectmen. Frank Brunelle, a Tisbury businessman, will face off against Larry Gomez, owner of Greenwood House inn and longtime chairman of the finance and advisory committee. Incumbent Jonathan Snyder will not seek re-election.

In other town contests, incumbent Daniel Seidman and Mr. Brunelle will compete for one five-year term on the planning board. Benjamin Robinson, appointed to fill the unexpired three-year term of Henry Stephenson, submitted his nomination papers for the five-year seat but plans to withdraw his nomination and run as a write-in candidate for the three-year term he now holds, according to town clerk Hillary Conklin. Voters go to the polls on Tuesday, April 28.
