CAPE ELIZABETH — Nomination papers for the Nov. 8 election have been available since Aug. 1 and three incumbents have already shown interest in serving again.

There are two seats available on the Town Council and two seats available on the School Board, with a possible third available depending on whether recently-elected Democrat Rep. Kimberly Monaghan-Derrig resigns her position on the School Board before the election.

Council Chairman David Sherman and Councilor Anne Swift-Kayata have reached their three-year terms, and have taken out papers to run again.

School Board Chairwoman Mary Townsend and member Kathy Ray have also reached their end of their terms, and Ray has taken out papers for the Town Council.

As of Wednesday, Aug. 17, no candidates have returned petitions, and no one has taken petitions for School Board, Town Clerk Debra Lane said.

Papers are due Friday, Sept. 9 at 4 p.m. in the Town Clerk’s office, 320 Ocean House Road.
