WILTON — Nomination papers for two selectman seats are due next week, and as of Tuesday no one has filed any papers.

Town Manager Rhonda Irish told the select board Tuesday night that no one has sought to file papers for the two seats, or for one of Wilton’s seats on the Regional School Unit 9 Board of Directors.

Papers are due at the town office by 5 p.m, Friday, April 29, and must be signed by at least 25 Wilton voters. All three positions are for three-year terms. Elections will be held on June 14 in advance of Town Meeting on June 20.

Chairwoman Tiffany Maiuri has indicated that she will seek re-election, and has taken out papers, but not yet submitted them to the town, Irish said. The second open seat on the select board is being vacated by Scott Taylor, who is not seeking re-election.

School board director Cherianne Harrison, who’s three-year term is up, has also indicated to Irish that she is interested in seeking reelection but has not yet taken or filed her nomination papers.

Irish also updated the board on several personnel changes within the municipality.


Wilton Police Officer Gary Allen recently submitted his resignation to the department, which will be effective June 1. Irish said this will give enough time for the department to gain back an officer that has been enrolled at the Maine Police Academy and begin looking for a candidate to fill Allen’s position.

Within the Town Office, following the retirement of former Assistant Town Manager Barbara Vining at the end of February, interviews were held to fill the position, and Water District Clerk Linda Bureau has been promoted to replace Vining. Counter clerk Michelle Leavitt was subsequently promoted to fill the water district clerk position. Cindy Greer was hired as counter clerk.
