GRANVILLE — When residents visit Town Hall on Monday, April 8, to cast ballots in the 2024 municipal election, there is only one contested seat, and it’s on the Selectboard.

Current Selectboard Chair Nicole Berndt is being challenged by a longtime member and current chair of the town’s Zoning Board of Appeals, Anthony Novak. Berndt is seeking a third three-year term after having been elected in 2019 and 2021.

The other offices on the ballot are moderator, town clerk, assessor, two seats on the Planning Board, library trustee, constable, Southwick-Tolland-Granville Regional School Committee representative, and five seats on the Recreation Committee.

Richard N. Pierce is running unopposed for reelection as moderator, and for one of the two open seats on the Planning Board. There are no other Planning Board candidates, so town officials are encouraging write-in campaigns. One of the available seats is for three years, and the other for two years.

Running unopposed on the ballot for reelection to three-year terms are Christina J. Teter, town clerk; Christopher C. Bouwer, assessor; April Labreque, library trustee; Pamela Petschke, School Committee; and five members of the Recreation Committee: Robert Beckwith, Linda M. Blakesley, William B. Blakesley, James E. Daley and Theodora J. Daley.

Current Selectboard member Scott J. Bergeron is running for a one-year term as constable.

Polls on April 8 will be open noon to 8 p.m.
