Parker May Have Opponent

            According to Marion Town records, Diane Lopes Flaherty, 1001 Point Road, has taken out nomination papers to run for the Select Board. Incumbent Randy Parker, 735 Mill Street, is up for reelection this year.

            Parker has already returned his nomination papers, making his reelection bid official. Flaherty, according to Town Clerk Lissa Magauran’s update on Monday, had yet to return her nomination papers.

            Chairman Toby Burr’s term ends in 2025, and Norm Hills’ term ends in 2026. Marion’s Select Board also serves as the town’s Water/Sewer commissioners.

            Magauran noted that Marion has had 651 residents apply for Vote by Mail ballots. The town had mailed out 644 as of Monday with the remaining seven due to go out on Tuesday. The town has not been able to mail all of the Libertarian Party ballots requested, as the state did not anticipate the high number of requests, according to Magauran, who added the state is working on sending Marion additional ballots that will be mailed out as soon as they are received.
