South Berwick

Candidates for several local and state offices will participate in a Candidates' forum on Tuesday, September 29th at 6:30pm in Council Chambers at the South Berwick Town Hall at 180 Main Street.  Because of the COVID-19 restrictions, the forum will be live streamed only and there will be no audience in attendance.

Candidates appearing are running for the South Berwick Town Council, RSU 35 Board of Directors, State House of Representatives and State Senate.  Incumbents Mallory Cook and John James are running unopposed for second terms on the Town Council.  Russ Abell and Heather Holland are seeking the School Board seat being vacated by Paul Stanley.  In House District 6, Burnell Bailey is challenging incumbent Tiffany Roberts who is seeking a second term.  In House District 1, Dan Ammons is vying for the seat held by Michele Meyer who is seeking a second term.  In Senate District 35, incumbent Mark Lawrence is being challenged by Brad Moulton.

The annual forum is sponsored by SmartGrowth South Berwick, a volunteer citizens group that supports community activities and commerce in the village center.  It is a part of SoBo Central.

The livestream video of the forum can be viewed on the Town website.  Click HERE to view the link.
Often, in my position, I have to make advance decisions about events.  These decisions are usually easy as we use past practice and each year we get better because we recognize if there was issues and fix them.  So many events have been cancelled here in South Berwick due to the present emergency status we are in due to the pandemic.  We have started to receive requests about whether or not we are going to have a Halloween Parade this year.  As you know, this is a big event that fills the streets and sidewalks with participants and spectators.  Social distancing would be extremely difficult to control.

It is with regret that I let you know in advance that the Halloween Parade will not happen this year.  The health and safety of our employees, our residents, and those visiting is one of the most important needs that we have during this period of time.

My apologies to everyone, but as I said earlier, I often have to be the decision maker as your Town Manager.
