Stonington - All the candidates running for the Borough Board of Warden and Burgesses on May 6 are running unopposed and will be elected to two-year terms.
Republican Warden Paul Burgess decided not to seek re-election and will be replaced by former Burgess Jeffrey Callahan, an independent, who has been endorsed by both the Democratic and Republican borough committees.
Callahan, 69, of Wall Street, retired last year from the University of Rhode Island where he spent the past 20 years as director of facilities and operations at the Graduate School of Oceanography. He has served three terms as a burgess.
The burgess candidates are Democrats Robert Scala and Amy G. Nicholas and Republicans Michael Adair, Michael Blair and Howard Park. All are incumbents except Blair, a former warden. Republican Clerk-Treasurer Brian Krafjack, Republican Tax Collector Tom Sanford and Democratic Assessor Lisa Coleman are also running unopposed. Voters can cast ballots from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the borough firehouse.
