Tuesday’s votes may still be getting counted, but it’s never too early to start looking towards the next election. There are, after all, only 139 days until the annual town election in Andover on March 28.
This year, select board member Laura Gregory and school committee member Lauren Conoscenti have three-year terms expiring. Moderator Sheila M. Doherty will also be up for reelection after serving her 15th one-year term. None have signaled whether they will seek reelection.
Gregory, a partner with Sloane & Walsh LLP, has served two terms since being elected to the board in 2017. Conoscenti is finishing up her first three-year term on the school committee. She is the Assistant Head of School for Analytic Support and Assessment at Phillips Academy Andover.
