Mark Wise, an engineer, and retiree Elwood Leonard filed to run in Place 3 for outgoing council member Mike Wallace’s seat.

Incumbent Tom Hayden is running unopposed in Place 5.

Candidates will be given the opportunity to give an overview of their background and experience, discuss issues they feel are most important, and will answer written questions submitted online in advance and from the audience.

Questions for the candidates can be submitted to the newspaper between now and Friday, April 22, by email at

The event will be broadcast live and rebroadcast several times before Election Day on FMTV, the town’s government access cable channel on Time Warner channel 16, Grande channel 12, and channel 42 on Verizon’s FiOS TV.
