for candidates for file nomination papers for the town’s top political job. Only one person filed nomination papers, town councillor Lennie White, who had been Acting Mayor since August. There’s no word on when White will be sworn in as Mayor.

With White moving up to the Mayor’s chair, that leaves a vacancy on town council. The deadline for nomination papers for the council seat is Tuesday.
