PETERSHAM — Seven incumbents are vying for eight open positions in this year’s town election.

Voting will take place Monday, March 5, in the South Main Street Town Hall’s lower level from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.

Those candidates running for re-election this year are as follows: Henry Woosley of Common Street as Selectman; Renee Wingertsman of New Athol Road as Tax Collector; Diana L. Cooley of South Street as Town Clerk; Dana W. Kennan of North Main Street to the Board of Assessors; Robert Pasic of Nichewaug Road to the Board of Health; Jennifer DeJackome of Hardwick Road to the Petersham School Committee; Stephen Herzog of Birch Drive to the Planning Board.

All of the offices listed above are voted on every three years. There is one opening on the Planning Board with no candidate running to fill it. 

In addition, constituents will decide on an article that, if passed, would “cease assessing the excise tax imposed under General Laws Chapter 59, section 8A on certain animals, machinery and equipment owned by individuals and non-corporate entities principally engaged in agriculture,” according to the election ballot. 

Anyone who wants to vote must be eligible to do so. For those interested, the actual ballot can be viewed at the Petersham Town Office Building, the Petersham Post Office, and the Petersham Package Store.
