Massachusetts: Templeton Selectman trying for comeback after losing recall in February
Former Templeton Selectman (sounds like they don't use the term Selectwoman) Julie Farrell is running in tomorrow's election in a race against Selectman Robert Columbus. Farrell, the former board chair, was kicked out in a recall in February. Columbus was one of the leaders of the recall effort (though he did not replace Farrell, he is seeking his third term).
Farrell was recalled after voting to fire town coordinator Carol Skelton, who has since returned in the job part time.
Farrell is also running for reelection for the Templeton Municipal Light Board, facing a challenge from Selectman Christopher Stewart.
