Dracut Selectman Tami Dristaliaris

If the first days of the nomination process are any indication, Dracut could be in for a lively municipal campaign season.
Prospective candidates have until March 13 to return nomination papers to the Town Clerk's Office. But already, contested races are emerging for the Board of Selectmen and the School Committee. The only name officially on the ballot, as of Feb. 17, is incumbent school committee member Matthew Sheehan.
In the chart below are the seats up for grabs in the 2017 Dracut Municipal Election and candidates that have taken out nomination papers, as of Feb. 17. We will update this chart weekly.
