Special Town Election - Saturday, October 21st from 9AM to 2PM

posted Oct 19, 2017, 4:39 PM by Goshen Webmaster

The Town of Goshen will hold a Special Town Election this coming Saturday, October 21.  The polls will be open between 9am and 2pm at the Town Hall at 42 Main Street.

There are two items on the ballot.  One is the race for Select Board to fill the seat vacated by former Select board member Nina Pinger.  James Heroux and James Barrett were nominated at a recent Town Caucus and are running for the office.

The other item is the following question:  Should the town vote to indemnify and save harmless municipal employees?

According to Town Clerk Gina Papineau, “Adoption of the proposed by-law will provide indemnification from personal loss for all those citizens who commit their time to civic and municipal involvement as elected, appointed or members of other Town boards or committees”.

She goes on to say that most towns and cities throughout Massachusetts have already adopted this provision of Mass General law.
