Eaton withdraws intent to run
by Faith DeAmbrose
Holly Eaton, who announced she would make a run for an open seat on Deer Isle’s Board of Selectmen as a write-in candidate, has taken herself out of the race.
Eaton’s decision leaves Peter Perez as the sole declared write-in as of press time. Perez announced his intention to run as a write-in for the seat last week.
Deer Isle did not have any candidates return papers by its deadline, therefore no names will be printed on the ballot. The position can be filled by a write-in.
Voters head to the polls on Monday, March 5, to begin the annual town meeting.
