Romano opposing Greeley in town election

Arlington election logo

The April 6 town election now has races, for selectmen and School Committee.

Opposing incumbent Selectman Kevin Greeley, in office since 1989, is Maria Romano, making her fourth run for the board.

School Committee incumbents Judson Pierce and Kirsi Allison-Ampe face opposition for the three-year seat from Michael Buckley.

Paul Schlichtman has no opposition for the one-year school seat, as initially reported. Melisa J. Tintocalis-Gauthier did not return papers.

All potential candidates for major town and school offices returned nomination papers by the 5 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 19, deadline, the clerk's office said, and that made them actual candidates.

All who have contested races or who might benefit from public exposure have been asked to comment on a basic set of questions about their candidacies. Stories have been published about Buckley and Pierce. Other stories are in process. Some candidates have not responded.

Romano, an opponent of the Mass. Ave. Corridor project, has been unsuccessful in three elections beginning in 2010. Greeley supports the Corridor project.
