Doyle to challenge Bear for selectman's seat


A total of 13 municipal seats will be filled on the May 14 ballot. Other incumbents whose three-year terms are up include Peter Murphy, Board of Assessors; Alba Gouldthorpe, Board of Health; Robin Williams, Triton Regional School Committee; Douglas Noyes, trustee of the First Settlers Burial Ground; and Charles Colby, fish commissioner. A seat currently held by Richard Passeri, who was appointed to fill a vacancy on the Board of Library Trustees, will also appear on the ballot.

A five-year seat on the Planning Board currently held by David Powell will appear on the annual ballot, as will a four-year term for constable now held by incumbent James Cunningham and a one-year spot as tree warden currently filled by Peter Hollis.

Two unexpired posts formerly held by life-long resident Richard “Dick” Cunningham, who passed away last June, must also be filled: a two-year term as trustee of the First Settlers Burial Ground and one-year as constable.

And an unexpired term for one-year as fish commissioner needs a candidate. The post was held by Byfield resident Everett Davis, who passed away last April.

The last day to pull papers is March 22. Papers, endorsed by at least 35 registered voters from Newbury, must be returned by Tuesday, March 26.
