CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | OCTOBER 15-21, 2020 CUMBERLAND 13 CUMBERLAND – If you live in the southern end of town and have always wanted to have a hand in local government, this might be your year. Back in late June, Fire Committee Chairwoman Cindy Ouellette said there was still some time to figure out how to fill a seat that no one appar- ently wanted following a declaration period where no one filed paperwork to run. Time is almost up. Departing District 1 Fire Committee member Richard Hayden previously ran as a write-in candidate for the seat after no one declared their inten- tion to seek it. Now, less than three weeks from the Nov. 3 election, the committee charged with running the Cumberland Fire District is in need of another write-in candidate. Committee member Paul Santoro said this week that someone needs to step up as a write-in candidate for the seat, and he's willing to help them with the process. Santoro, who is looking to make a challenge for the chairman- ship, said there have been no rumored names for the seat, but he wants to start generating some buzz about the available post. "We're running out of time," said Ouellette this week. No one seems to want what is often a thankless job of running the district, she said. Ouellette said the next move if no one runs as a write-in candidate would likely be for the Town Council to appoint a willing participant to the seat. Ouellette, of District 3, is the only committee member facing a challenge this year, with former member James Scullin seeking her seat.
