Sharon Selectman to Run for Reelection in 2013
William Heitin was named chairman in May 2012 and is finishing up his third term on the board.
Sharon Board of Selectmen Chair William Heitin is planning to run for reelection in 2013, according to a recent post on Boston.com.
“As of today, I have every intention of running,” Heitin told the Boston Globe. “We have a really good board.”
The board named Heitin chairman in May 2012, when he succeeded Richard Powell, who held the post for one year. Voters at the annual town election re-elected Powell to a third three-year term on the board; he received 795 votes of the 1,245 ballots. Write-in candidate Michael O'Shea finished second with 396 votes.
Heitin is currently serving his third term on the board. He told the Globe he'd like to see a number of goals accomplished on the board, such as identifying a new public water source in Sharon, as well as breaking ground on development for Sharon Commons, among other goals.
