NORRIDGEWOCK — Richard Holt is one of nine candidates running for five selectman seats this year. His name was inadvertently omitted from a story Monday about the race.

Incumbent Holt, 70, is running for a seat because he enjoys the work, he said, and wants to help usher in a natural gas pipeline.

A selectman for seven years, he said he also aims to keep taxes low and help residents on fixed incomes.

He supports staggering selectmen terms and lengthening them beyond one year. “That way, you wouldn’t end up with five new people, which could happen,” he said.

Holt was a machinist for 36 years at Solon Manufacturing Co. before it closed; he retired in 2003. This is his second year on the Somerset County budget committee. He’s a member of the Free Masons and East Madison Grange.

The other candidates are Charlotte Curtis, Donna Davis, Matthew Everett, Reginald Frederick, Ron Frederick, Thomas Lint, James Hilton and Sara Wilder.

Elections are 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday at Mill Stream Elementary School. The election is followed by the annual Town Meeting at 7:30 p.m.
