Lemon & Dorr Vacancies: What to do?

This week's poll question deals with the recent vacancy created on the Board of Selectmen and the vacancy with the Treasurer/Collectors office by the resignations of Herb Lemon and Doug Dorr, respectively.

Do you support holding an immediate special election or should we wait until the April election cycle?


  1. No I don't support a special election due to the cost, and I don't say wait until April. My suggestion would be to appoint to the position those who ran in last year's election but lost. They had an interest in working for the citizens of Bridgewater.

  2. A special election is a waste of money when you have individuals ready to step up. Whichever runner-up candidate received the most votes should be appointed.
