CUMBERLAND — The June 11 municipal election has attracted four candidates for two open seats on the Town Council, and three for two Cumberland representatives on the School Administrative District 51 Board of Directors.
There are no contested elections, meanwhile, in North Yarmouth.
Instead of seeking re-election to the Cumberland council, where he holds an at-large seat, Councilor Peter Bingham is running for the School Board, where he has previously served. He has also been on the Aging in Place Committee, Planning Board, Lands & Conservation Commission, and the council’s Nominating and Finance committees.
Councilor Mike Edes is running again for his at-large seat. He has been on the council’s Ordinance Committee, as well as the Cumberland/North Yarmouth Joint Standing Committee, Central Fire Station Building Committee, and the Falmouth/Cumberland Chamber of Commerce.
Three other candidates for an at-large seat are Geoffrey Michalak; Brian Cashin, who has been a member of the Central Fire Station Building and Aging in Place committees; and Bob Vail, a former School Board member who has also served on the Planning Board, Board of Assessment Review, and Coastal Waters Commission.
Mike Brown is running again for his School Board seat, while Gigi Sanchez is not. Along with Bingham, Jennifer Stewart of Mayflower Drive is running for the panel.
In neighboring North Yarmouth, Anne Graham and Jim Moulton are running unopposed for their seats on the Select Board, as are Kevin Desmond for his North Yarmouth seat on the SAD 51 Board of Directors, and Joy Malloy for her Cemetery Commission post.
Four Budget Committee posts are up for grabs. James Knight and Andy Walsh are running again for three-year terms. With two vacant one-year positions available, only Carol LeCours submitted nomination papers.
