More candidates emerge for Board of Selectmen and School Committee positions. Foxborough’s annual town election is scheduled for May 6.
Foxborough selectman Lynda Walsh has pulled nomination papers for reelection, according to the Town Clerk’s office. Walsh, who will be completing her second term in the spring, is currently the longest tenured board member. She told Foxborough Patch last month that while she planned to run for reelection she would not make a final decision until she consulted with friends and family. Her decision became official on Feb. 5 when she pulled nomination papers from the Town Clerk’s office. Walsh joins Foxborough residents Richard Letson and John Gray Jr. as potential candidates for two seats on the town’s executive board. A resident becomes an official ballot candidate after Town Clerk Robert Cutler verifies 50 voters have signed the candidate’…

Nomination papers have been pulled for seven town positions, including Board of Selectmen and School Committee. Foxborough’s annual town election is scheduled for May 6.
With the first week to pull nomination papers in the books, 11 Foxborough residents have expressed interest in running for seven of the 14 open town positions in May’s annual election. Most notably, two potential candidates for the two Board of Selectmen seats have emerged and neither one – to this point – are current members James DeVellis or Lynda Walsh. Richard R. Letson of East Street and John R. Gray Jr. of North High Street each pulled papers for selectmen seats last week. Letson pulled papers for the 2012 Foxborough selectmen race but decided not to run after he was unable to gain support of veterans for his candidacy, according to a March 2012 article in The Sun Chronicle. Letson, a three-year Foxborough resident, is an Army …

Foxborough’s Special Town Meeting will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 11 at 7:30 p.m. at Foxborough High School.
Foxborough’s Advisory Committee has begun the process of reviewing potential warrant articles for December’s Special Town Meeting, which now has a date in place - Tuesday, Dec. 11 at 7:30 p.m. inside Foxborough High School. However, if that date conflicts with the high school’s use of the facility then Special Town Meeting will be held in the high school on Wednesday, Dec. 12 at 7:30 p.m. The town will close the warrant on Tuesday, Oct. 30, which is the deadline for residents to submit warrant articles for the town’s review. “It does not bind [town officials] from putting something in the warrant,” said Town Manager Kevin Paicos at the Oct. 16 Board of Selectmen meeting. Not expected on December’s Town Warrant are any articles related to …

Plans are unveiled for a brand new town hall building to be constructed on the current site.
Joe Milani, project architect at Kaestle Boos Associates, walked selectmen and the public through two conceptual plans for a proposed new town hall building Tuesday night, April 12. Before diving into the cost estimates, Milani and Foxborough town manager Kevin Paicos, spoke on the history of the town hall building. Foxborough's town hall is 48 years old and was constructed in 1963. In 1999, the Space Needs Committee recommended the building under-go a renovation. However, timing and cost estimates never quite seemed to match up. In September 2010, the board of selectmen authorized the hiring of architects, engineers and cost estimators to study the feasibility options of renovating or rebuilding town hall. Milani along with Foxborough's…

A balanced budget top priority for Kevin Paicos.
Foxborough’s Town Manager Kevin Paicos discussed his plans for balancing the town budget, the ongoing renovation projects in town and some thoughts on time he served in Afghanistan in Foxborough Patch's Q & A session.

You know you like your job when you leave for the day with still so many things on your plate and you think to yourself, “where did the time go?” I am absolutely loving my time here. I can see …
