Only one contested race in Chester, eight offices have no candidates

The petitions have been submitted, the signatures checked and here is the slate of candidates standing for elective office in Chester. The only office that is being contested is the three year select board position currently held by Derek Suursoo.  Heather C. Chase is running to take Suursoo’s place.   A write-in candidate for any of the open offices for which there are no candidates can be elected with the votes of at least 1 per cent of the voter checklist – or about 22 votes.  The election for these offices will be held from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday March 3 at Town Hall.
