NAPLES – It’s a crowded field in the race for Naples Selectboard this year.
When town voters head to the polls on Tuesday, May 30, they will see a total of six candidates running for three selectboard seats. Two of those seats are full three-year terms, and the other is a partial one-year term to serve the remainder of Christine Powers’ seat, since she has moved out of town.
Three candidates are running for the two full-terms seats. Naples Budget Committee Chairman Jim Grattelo is challenging incumbents Kevin Rogers and Dana Watson.
Three other candidates are running to fill the remainder of Powers’ term: DJ entertainment business owner Bill Adams, Naples Planning Board member John Thompson and Budget Committee Vice Chairman James Turpin.
Five of the candidates shared information about their background and vision for the town with the Lakes Region Weekly. Current Selectman Kevin Rogers could not be reached for comment.
None of the other races on the Naples ballot are contested.
