ANSON — There are no contested races for town positions this year, but two new faces will appear on the board of selectmen if no one runs as a write-in candidate.

Philip Turner, 53, submitted nomination papers by 4 p.m. Tuesday to run for a one-year selectman seat. Brenda Garland, 48, is running for a three-year selectman position.

Both have run in the past but did not win a seat on the board.

Incumbent John Bryant, 68, is seeking the third and final open selectman seat for a three-year term.

Turner said he would like to trim more of the highway department budget and create a more inclusive working relationship between those in Anson and North Anson.

Bryant said he wants to continue talking with other towns in the area about sharing services.

Garland said she’s excited about running again. “This is something I’ve always wanted. I truly believe that if it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. I’m just amazed that nobody else ran,” she said.

The election will run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on March 3, with the open meeting starting at 2:30 p.m., all at Garret Schenck School.
