TYRINGHAM -- A father and son are vying for separate public offices during today’s annual town election.

Town Clerk John N. Curtin faces a challenge from Norman Beamon, while Michael Curtin and Benjamin Havill square off for the two-year unexpired term on the Planning Board.

Registered voters can cast ballots from noon to 6 p.m. at Town Hall.

Curtin says he’s facing his first opposition since being elected to the job 19 years ago. Prior to Curtin, Tyringham had four town clerks in five years as the incumbent says he’s brought stability to the part-time position.

"I’m always open to help people day and night, whenever things need to be done," he said.

The Eagle was unable to reach Beamon for comment on his candidacy.

The remaining candidates on the ballot are running unopposed including Selectman Chairman Christopher Johnson, School Committee member Kyle DeSantis and Maureen Lenti. Lenti seeks to replace Ed Nardi on the school board, finishing the last two years of Nardi’s three-year term.
