If you can’t make it to the forum but want to submit a question, call or text Lynda Clancy, 207-706-6657, or email, to get it posed to the candidates.

The forum format will allow for each candidate to deliver an opening statement, and then each will have two minutes to respond to questions from the floor. If warranted, there will be time or follow-up questions. Candidates will also each be allowed two minutes for closing statements.

There are two available three-year seats on the Select Board, currently occupied by Chairman Ken McKinley and Owen Casas. 

There is also a one-year seat that was vacated by former Select Board member Tom Gray, who resigned in March. McKinley is the only candidate seeking that seat.

Casas is not seeking re-election.

The three seeking election to the two three-year seats are: 

Debra Hall

John Alexander

Jeffrey Hamilton
