Selectmen chairman too busy to run again

Posted by smaas February 23, 2007 12:13 PM


Southborough's selectmen chairman will not seek re-election.

Roger Challen announced yesterday that he needs to spend more time with his small high-tech business.

So far only Dan Bradley(cq), a former member of the Northborough-Southborough Regional District School Committee and a friend of Challenís, has taken out papers for the seat.

Bradley, a 56-year-old insurance agent, has been involved in the Algonquin Regional High School building project since its inception and founded the local Save Algonquin Now group.

The deadline to file papers for the May 14 election is March 23. Candidates must have the signatures of 44 registered town voters.

Looking back on his three-term, Challen cited conserving 133 acres at Chestnut Hill Farm as one of the achievements that most pleased him.
