Guy Carbone was the first candidate to obtained the required signatures to run for the open selectman’s seat. On Thursday, March 2, the Woodfall Road resident arrived with his campaign team to the Town Clerk’s office at Town Hall to submit the paperwork to officially open his campaign.
And as the first-time town-wide candidate noted, he’s putting his campaign in the hands of some capable women.
“I listen to one [woman] at home and two in this race,” said Carbone. Chairman of the campaign committee is Precinct 5’s Ana Helena Silva Cruz who was accompanied to Town Hall by two of her three children. It’s a familiar name managing the campaign with Erin Lubien taking that role. She helped Jim Williams upset Andy Rojas in the 2015 selectman’s race and ran Alexandra Ruban’s campaign in her race for selectman in 2016. The committee’s treasurer is Fred Kelley of Beatrice Circle.
Carbone and Adam Dash of Goden Street are on the ballot for the one seat on the board this year. Incumbent Sami Baghdady decided last month not to run to retain the seat.
Town Election is April 4.
