Hadley voters to consider question about health insurance premiums

Voting at the annual town election is from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Hopkins Academy.

The ballot question approved by the Select Board asks: “Shall the town pay one-half of the premium costs payable by the surviving spouse of an employee or retired employee for group general, or blanket hospital, surgical, medical, dental or other health insurance?”

The ballot question requires a majority vote to pass. If approved, Town Administrator David G. Nixon said the town’s health insurance premium costs would increase by about $6,500 annually.

In addition to the ballot question, these candidates are running uncontested Tuesday:

Moderator, Gerald T. Devine; Select Board, Molly A. Keegan; assessor, Raymond C. Szala; Board of Health, Richard J. Tessier and David G. Farnham; Planning Board two-year seat, Michael P. Sarsynski, Jr.; Planning Board five-year seat, (vacant, write-in); School Committee, Linda L. Dunlavy and Sean Anthony Mackin; elector under Oliver Smith Will, Sheila M. Konieczny and Andrew L. Klepacki; library trustee, Claire C. Carlson and Noel Kurtz.
