Four of the races are contested — Moderator; Board of Selectmen; Board of Public Works; and School Committee.
For your convenience, here is a link to a round-up of all the Wellesley candidates and their Q&A’s.
In addition, there is a non-binding referendum question on the ballot:
Non-binding referendum question:
Do you believe the Town of Wellesley should keep our current 7 neighborhood elementary school model by rebuilding and/or renovating the Hardy, Hunnewell and Upham Elementary Schools, instead of closing one school and redistricting all of our elementary students into 6 schools? Please vote YES or NO. A YES vote would advise the Town of Wellesley to retain our current neighborhood school model by renovating and/or rebuilding the Hardy, Hunnewell and Upham Elementary Schools. A NO vote would advise the Town of Wellesley to close either Hardy Elementary School or Upham Elementary School, without voter input on which school to close, and to re-district all our town’s elementary students into six schools.
This Wellesley election post is sponsored by the Lauren Duprey for School Committee campaign.
