The campaign season that culminates with the March 11, 2023 town election will be 95 days long.

That was established on Monday night when Bopha Malone announced that she will be a candidate for re-election to the Select Board.

Malone, seeking her second term, is the first candidate to publicly declare his or her intentions. She announced her candidacy at the close of her report on meetings she attended as a Select Board liaison.

Her colleague Ed Pierce, whose term also expires next March, offered his liaison report after Malone’s, but did not mention his plans.

On Tuesday morning, Malone followed up with an email announcement and fundraising pitch to supporters. 

There’s plenty of time for prospective candidates to decide. The statutory deadline for filing nominating petitions to secure a place on the ballot is Friday, Jan. 20.

Most candidates for local office historically have bypassed the petition route by seeking the nomination at the Citizens’ Caucus, which is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 10. The caucus can nominate two people for each vacancy.
