Select Board Changes
Select board members Jared Collins and Al Cestaro announced at the March 7 board meeting that they will not be running for re-election in May.
Cestaro was first elected in a December 2018 special balloting. He was re-elected in May 2019 along with Collins.
“I just need to take a step back because it’s not totally working for me and my expectations,” Collins said at the meeting. “I’m very happy with what we’ve done, and I will continue to attempt to assist the town in any way possible. I’m not going anywhere.”
“It’s been a whole lot of fun, but I’ve got to be headed down the road,” said Cestaro. “I love the town of Eastham. It’s been a great experience.”
Collins and Cestaro endorsed the two candidates who have announced they will run — finance committee chair Jerry Cerasale and Suzanne Bryan, who is a member of the T-Time Development Committee and the conservation commission.
“That’s part of the reason that I’m stepping down,” Collins said. “I think that they both would be better candidates, and my primary concern for the town is having the best people behind the wheel.”
The town election will be held on May 17 at town hall. —Cam Blair
