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.
