NEWBURY — Voters may have choices to make at the annual town election this May. 

Town Clerk Leslie Haley said five residents have pulled nomination papers to fill two, three-year terms on the Board of Selectmen: Alicia Greco, Donald Jarvis, Richard Knight, William Pearson and incumbent Geoff Walker.

There also could potentially be a second contested race if Peter Hollis and Keith Stromski both return the papers they are currently circulating for a one-year stint as tree warden.

So far nomination papers have been returned by Walker, Haley for another three years as town clerk, and Richard Moss for a two-year unexpired term on the Planning Board.

Others who are now circulating papers include: Paul Daubitz, constable, four-year term; Elaine Byrne, Board of Health, three-year term; Linda McCamic, Board of Assessors, one-year unexpired term; Nancy Colombo, Library Board of Trustees, three-year term; and John Weis, Planning Board, five-year term.

Several open posts still need candidates including additional seats for library trustee, Planning Board and Board of Assessors, as well as Trustee of the First Settlers Burial Ground, Triton Regional School Committee and fish commissioner. All these posts are for three-year terms.

The last day to obtain nomination papers is March 22. They must be submitted by March 24 with a minimum of 35 signatures of voters registered in Newbury. Last day to register to vote is April 22. The May 12 election is from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
