WILMINGTON, MA — It’s going to be a relatively quiet election season in Wilmington this year, with only one contested race on the ballot.
Wilmington Select Board member Gary DePalma is seeking a second term on the board. DePalma — along with challengers Frank West, a former Selectman & local realtor, and Jim DeFeo, an Army veteran and sergeant with the Boston Police Department — are vying for two seats. Current Select Board Chair Judy O’Connell is not seeking re-election.
Wilmington School Committee Chair Jennifer Bryson will run unopposed for a third term. She’ll be joined by political newcomer Michael Mercaldi, who is also uncontested. Mercaldi will replace current School Committee member Melissa Plowman, who is not seeking re-election.
Wilmington’s Director of Veterans Services and former Selectman Lou Cimaglia will run unopposed for a seat on the Wilmington Housing Authority. Cimaglia will replace the board’s current chair — Robert DiPasquale — who is not seeking re-election.
The Town Moderator and the Shawsheen Tech School Committee members are NOT up for re-election this year.
The Annual Town Election will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2023. Polls will be open from 8am to 8pm.
