There will be a candidates night on Tuesday, Feb. 4 at 6 p.m. at Truro Town Hall. Voters will have an opportunity to listen to the two select board candidates on the ballot for the Feb. 18 special town election.
The candidates are Karen Tosh, a current member of the planning board, and Stephanie Rein, a farmer and one of the founders of Sustainable CAPE.
Tosh, 69, is a lawyer and mediator who is also the founder with her husband, Tracey Maclin, of the nonprofit Auction Rescues. The organization saves miniature horses from slaughter. Tosh has served on the planning board since 2017.
Rein, 50, has been a farmer and property manager in Truro for over 20 years. She runs the farmer-in-the-school program on the Outer Cape, is a member of the High Dune Craft Cooperative, and is the mother of two teenage daughters.
Whoever wins this race will serve only until the May 12 election. That is because this election is being held to fill the unexpired term of Maureen Burgess, who died of a stroke in November.
The winning candidates will have to run again in May if she wishes to continue on the select board for another three years.
On Feb. 18 the voting booths will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Truro Community Center. —K.C. Myers
