Seven elected officials in Milford pulled nomination papers Monday, the first step in a candidacy for re-election, according to the Milford Town Clerk's office.
The list includes Brian Murray, an incumbent member on the Board of Selectman and the current chairman.
In addition, a potential race for town treasurer now exists. Barbara A. Auger, the incumbent treasurer, pulled nominations papers Monday, as did Michael D. Soares, a field service engineer with Ventana Medical Systems. Auger also is an applicant for the open position of Milford Town Administrator. That selection process is expected to be completed by early March.
The Milford town election is April 2.
