A candidate (or candidates) is still needed for Concord Housing Authority after the Town Caucus nominated no one to fill an opening five-year term on the board.

The Housing Authority has four locally elected members and a fifth who is appointed by the governor. Its purpose, according to the town website, "is the development and administration of an adequate supply of low and moderate income housing for town residents."

In a press release crafted after the Town Caucus turned up no candidates, the Town Clerk’s Office reminded residents that nomination papers are still available to any Concord voter who wishes to run for the five-year position on the Concord Housing Authority -- or any other elected office.  

"Since no candidates were nominated at the Jan. 27 Caucus for this position, interested individuals would need to complete and file Nomination Papers in order for their name to appear on the March 25 ballot," the press release said. 

To get on the ballot for the annual Town Election, a prospective candidate must obtain 50 signatures -- and candidates are encouraged to obtain a few extras to make sure they have enough legitimate signatures --  and then file their papers with the Town Clerk’s Office by 5 p.m. next Tuesday, Feb. 4. 

For more information about running for public office, contact the Town Clerk’s Office at 978-318-3080 or via e-mail at townclerk@concordma.gov.
