I wish all of the candidates good luck and thank you for stepping up! If you do not know the candidates and their positions, here is a link to candidates' answers to questions from the LWV: http://www.westford.com/lwv/?page_id=1018 As for who I am voting for, I am running for the 4 year term for Westford Housing Authority and I plan to vote for myself. This post is my entire campaign as running unopposed is not incredibly exciting. For the other positions, I still have 24 hours to decide!

Running unopposed is boring, but someone has to do it. Congrats as the winner anyways Cori. Welcome to the wonderful world of local politics, where no matter what you do, someone will complain loudly and frequently.

Thank you and you are so right about the complaints :) It's ok, though; it's often just a case of someone not having a deep understanding and if you give them more details they can understand it better. People ask me about Chapter 40B all the time and I have to explain that that is not us, but I can see why they think it is. We are "the other stuff" :)
