GRAFTON, Mass. — Will third time be the charm for Bruce Spinney?
Spinney, a former Planning Board chairman who ran for the Grafton Board of Selectmen in 2012 and 2011, has taken out papers with the clerk’s office to run for one of two open selectmen seats. Zoning Board of Appeals member Robert Nault has also filed his intent.
Long time selectman Peter Adams decided last week not to run for re-election and Chairman David Ross is still mulling over his decision.
Spinney has served as chairman of the Grafton Planning Board, a member of the Fisherville & Farnumsville Streetscape Committee, and on the Community Preservation Committee, among other appointments.
A Grafton resident for 11 years, Spinney grew up in Sutton and lives with his wife, Elizabeth, and three children on Brielle Road. He is a former sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps and earned his bachelor's degree from the University of Maryland while serving in Japan.
Although this will be Nault’s first run for selectman, he is no stranger to the municipal center. He is currently clerk of the Zoning Board of Appeals, a member of the Fisherville & Farnumsville Streetscape Committee and the Capital Improvement Planning Committee. He has lived in Grafton for almost his entire life. He is married with children and has coached little league and was a cub master.
To round out the election season to date, Henry Poler and Dana Wilson have filed to run for re-election on the Board of Library Trustees, and Sargon Hanna has filed to run for re-election for a one year term on the planning board.
