Reece vs. Dudman in town board race



MOUNT DESERT — Two candidates are vying for one seat on the Board of Selectmen in the May 7 municipal elections.

Stephanie Reece, who with her husband, Mark, owns the Colonel’s Restaurant and Bakery in Northeast Harbor, is challenging incumbent Martha Dudman for a three-year term.

None of the other four seats on the board are up for election this year.

Last Friday was the deadline for candidates to file nomination papers with the town clerk.

Heather Jones filed for re-election to a three-year term on the school committee. But there are no official candidates for the seat currently held by Caroline Pryor, who decided not to run again. That opens the possibility for a write-in candidate to be elected.

Two of Mount Desert’s three seats on the Mount Desert Island High School Trustees Board are up for election this year. Only incumbent Tony Smith has filed as a candidate. Mia Thompson, who has been away for several months, did not file for re-election.
