PITTSFIELD — Three people are on the municipal ballot next week to secure a single at-large seat on the Town Council.

Voters on Election Day, which is Tuesday, will decide among Eric Glencross, Natalia Hall and Peter Logiodice. The winner will serve a three-year term. They’re looking to replace Councilor Brent Frost, who is not seeking reelection.

Glencross, 49, is an advocate for the disabled who has been a resident of the town for 20 years. He hopes that as a town councilor he can have a larger megaphone to speak out about bullying that’s often directed at the disabled.

“I’ve been bullied before in school and I’ve been picked on,” he said. “That’s why I want to stop the bullying.”

Glencross said he wants to direct some town money toward having a school resource officer who, among other duties, can monitor for bullying behavior. He said more also must be done to improve roads and recycling efforts in town.

Glencross ran last year for a seat on the council but fell short.


“I’m putting out campaign signs so people know me better this year, and maybe I can get elected,” he said.

Natalia Hall, 42, has lived in Pittsfield all her life and is married with two children. She has a master’s degree from Husson University in Bangor and serves as an associate vice president with Northern Light Health.

“I have lived here my whole life and I know the community well,” she said.

Hall said the town must continue working on revitalizing its downtown. Progress had been made on that front but more work is needed along Main Street, she said.

“We’re very excited about that because we really want to bring Main Street to life again,” she said.

Hall also said new housing starts are needed in Pittsfield, as well as expanded employment opportunities.


She wants to be a sounding board for resident concerns and encourage people to participate in town government.

“I have a sense of energy and excitement around this position and for my hometown and that’s why people should vote for me,” she said.  “I’m willing to do the work and be a part of the work.”

The third candidate, Logiodice, did not respond to messages seeking details about his candidacy.

He previously served on the Town Council but lost a reelection bid last year when he was defeated by Howard Margolskee.

There are also three open seats for the School Administrative District 53 school board. Each one is for a three-year term.

But there are only two people on the ballot seeking those seats: Megan Hart and Victor Quint.
