2013 Stoughton Town Election: Who are the Candidates?

Here's a look at what positions are up this election cycle and who is running for town-wide office.

The January 2 deadline has passed to file nomination papers to run for town-wide office in this upcoming April's annual Town Election, and as has been the case in recent years, many of the races will be uncontested.

Four candidates will be vying for two seats on the Stoughton School Committee in this April's Town Election.

No other town-wide race will be contested.

Incumbents John Stagnone (Selectmen) and Tom Colburn (School Committee) will not seek reelection.

I would like to wish John Stagnone the best and thank him for his service to Stoughton. I would also like to thank Joyce Husseine for all the time and committee work she puts in as a School Committee member, and for choosing to run again.
