Chebeague Island selectmen election draws 4 candidates for 2 seats

CHEBEAGUE ISLAND — Four residents filed nomination papers for two open seats on the Board of Selectmen, while only one person is running for the School Board, which has two vacancies.

Election Day is June 11.

Mark Dyer, who has been on the Board of Selectmen most of the time since Chebeague Island's secession from Cumberland in 2007, is running again. Selectman Mary Holt is not seeking re-election.

Competing with Dyer for a seat on the board are Peter Pellerin of North Road, Nelson "Dave" Stevens of South Road, who serves on the Coastal Waters Commission, and former Town Clerk Susan Campbell of Meetinghouse Lane.

Incumbent Carol White is uncontested for her seat on the School Board. Jerry Wiles has chosen not to seek another term. The School Board could appoint someone to fill Wiles' seat if a write-in candidate does not emerge.
