Six vie for seat on Seabrook Board of Selectmen


Reason for running: “ Seabrook has been good to me and given me a lot and I’d like to give some of that back. I think I’m the person who can do exactly that.”

Paula J. Wood

Age: 59

Address: A Street


Education: Graduate of Needham High School; additional college-level courses in finance and banking.

Occupation: Brown’s Lobster Pound staff; previously, school aide in Seabrook School District.

Political offices held: Budget Committee, 15 years, currently chairwoman; appointed alternate to Planning Board, one year.

Improving transparency in town government: “I would relocate the selectmen’s desks so they aren’t all in one room to lessen the incidence of chance meetings. I would also get citizens more involved in town committees and subcommittees, as was done in the past.

Reason for running: “I’m running because I can see the town moving forward, and I would like to help guide it on its way.”
