Paul Mazzuchelli will not seek a third term on the Milford School Committee, citing personal and professional obligations.
Paul Mazzuchelli, a two-term School Committee member, will not run for a third term. Mazzuchelli said Tuesday he had struggled with the decision, but felt he couldn't guarantee a time commitment to the position, given personal and professional commitments. Mazzuchelli is fulfilling his current term, and will have served six years when he steps down. He will continue serving on the Milford Housing Authority for at least the next year.

And a former School Committee member, Jonathan Bruce, has taken out nomination papers to run for a seat. The election is April 2.
