GLOCESTER – There will be no Democrats running for the Glocester Town Council this year, but if all of candidates who registered their intent to run this week follow through, nine contenders will compete for five seats on the board.

Current members seeking re-election in 2024 include Council President William Worthy, along with Councilors Walter Steere, Cheryl Greathouse and Jonathan Burlingame, all registered Republicans. Vice Council President Stephen Arnold did not declare intent to run in the upcoming contest.

Those hoping to win a seat on the board include Republicans George Steere, Matthew Verrier and Stephanie Calise, along with independents Gregory Gabel and Mark Howard.

Town Clerk Jean Fecteau will run unopposed, as will John Luszcz, who hopes to retain his position as director of human services. Albert Aubin will also run uncontested for his role as town sergeant.

In the General Assembly, several have stepped forward to campaign for the seat previously held by District 53 Rep. Brian Rea, who has opted not to run in 2024. They include independent Jonathan Cappuccino, Democrat Bernard Hawkins and Republican Paul Santucci.

In District 47, incumbent Republican Rep. David Place will face a challenge from Democrat Paul Roselli.

District 23 will see a challenge by Democrat Lewis Pryeor for the seat currently held by Republican Sen. Jessica de la Cruz.

And in District 40 Republican Rep. Michael Chippendale will face a contest from Democrat Linda Nichols.

Candidates must now submit signed nomination papers in order to appear on the ballot.

The school committee is on a separate schedule in Glocester, with those candidates to declare their intent to run beginning Wednesday, August 7.
