NORTH SMITHFIELD BLACKSTONE WOONSOCKET EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | FEBRUARY 18-24, 2021 BLACKSTONE 5 violated conflict-of-interest rules by advocating for changes that would have resulted in a higher payment to his wife, a town employee, a result Keefe has said was uninten- tional. The Board of Selectmen later voted not to reprimand him, citing a desire to move on from the con- troversy. Chamberland is a former town selectman who launched an unsuc- cessful bid for a state representa- tive seat as a Republican candi- date in 2018. He works as deputy chief of staff for the Massachusetts Executive Office of Public Safety and Security. Barry and Polak are both compet- ing for the seat vacated by former Selectwoman Taylor Greene. In January, Greene, a two-year mem- ber of the board, resigned her seat due to child care issues exacerbated by COVID-19. Barry is a construction company employee who led an unsuccess- ful effort to recall board Chairman Robert Dubois from office last sum- mer in the midst of the investiga- tion. Polack is a business manage- ment professional running on a plat- form of change and accountability. The election's only other con- tested race is for a Blackstone representative on the Blackstone- Millville Regional District School Committee. Keri Gaudette and Timothy Howell are both running for a four-year term. At the same time, a race to fill a vacant term on the committee that expires next year drew no candi- dates. This year's annual town election takes place on Monday, April 5. The last day to register to vote is Tuesday, March 16. The full list of candidates is as fol- lows: • Board of Assessors (three-year term) – Franscena Schandelmayer- Davis (incumbent) • BMR District School Committee (four-year term, Blackstone rep- resentative) – Keri Gaudette and Timothy Howell • BMR District School Committee (unexpired four-year term expiring 2022, Blackstone representative) – no candidates • BMR District School Committee (unexpired four-year term expiring 2024, Blackstone representative) – Sarah Williams (incumbent) • BMR District School Committee (four-year term, Millville represen- tative) – Amanda Guilmain • Board of Health (three-year term) – Peter Ryan Sr. (incumbent) • Moderator (unexpired three-year term expiring 2023) – John Wozniak • Parks & Recreation Commission (two positions, three-year terms) – Donald Cox (incumbent) and Robert Gilbert (incumbent) • Parks & Recreation Commission (unexpired three-year term expiring 2023) – no candidates • Planning Board (five-year term) – Anthony Catalano Sr. (incumbent) • Board of Selectmen (three-year term) – Daniel Keefe (incumbent) and Ryan Chamberland • Board of Selectmen (unexpired three-year term expiring 2022) – Ryan Barry and Tanya Polak From preceding page NORTH SMITHFIELD ZONING BOARD OF REVIEW HEARING NOTICE 83 GREENE STREET, NORTH SMITHFIELD (NO PUBLIC ALLOWED IN PERSON)** MARCH 9, 2021 7:00 PM **Due to the Governor's Executive Order, the public will not be allowed to attend except through the following options: Participation does not require a computer.
