GRANBY — The annual town election will be on Monday, May 20 and is led off with a four-way race for an open Selectboard term for three years.

Current Selectboard member Richard Beaulieu has decided to not run for reelection and the open seat has brought out four potential candidates. John Arcouette, David Labonte, Nathaniel Masse and Micheline D. Turgeon are the four nominees to be listed on the ballot.

The School Committee will see two vacancies but so far only one candidate, incumbent Jennifer Bartosz, on the ballot. According to Granby Town Clerk Kathy Kelly-Regan no one has expressed to be a write-in for the other position.

Almost all of the other open positions to be on the ballot only see an incumbent alone running for reelection. Incumbent Dakota Richards runs unopposed for another term as assessor, as do other incumbents Lee Lalonde for the Board of Health, Lynn Mercier for moderator, Nicole Menard for town collector, Steven Nally for treasurer, Gordon Landry for Burial Grounds Commissioner, and James Trompke for the Planning Board.

The lone candidate for a five-year term on the Housing Authority is incumbent Joseph Furnia. There is also another Housing Authority position on the ballot but for an unexpired term for four years. Ronald Richard and Douglas Smith are the two contestants in the race.

Rounding out the ballot is the race for Library Trustees which sees three open spots up for grabs. Incumbent Denise Conti will seek reelection. According to Kelly-Regan she has been informed that two individuals, Jennifer Chauvin and Bernadette Archambault, are interested as being write-ins for the position.

The last day to register to vote to be eligible for the May 20 annual town election is Friday, May 3.
