Selectman Salvatori announces plans to step down


Selectman Sal Salvatori, elected to the board when it expanded from three to five members in 2004, announced Tuesday that he will not seek reelection in the April 7 town election.

The announcement comes less than a week after School Committee Chairman Cindy Thomas informed her board that she would also not seek re-election this year. Salvatori, like Thomas, said he wanted to announce his decision as early as possible to give other potential candidates enough time to run for the seat.

Salvatori’s is one of two seats open on the Board of Selectmen this year, with incumbent Avril Elkort planning to run for the other seat.

Salvatori, who plans to fill the remainder of his term, said he is not moving and will remain interested and active in town affairs.

Salvatori said it was a family decision not to run and he felt that it was “time for [him] to find the next challenge.” He has served as selectmen for 11 years and served as chairman during portions of the downtown streetscape project and during negotiations with the Napleton Company that netted the town the Reservoir Pond and dam.

“We are sad to hear this news,” said current Selectmen Chairman Victor Del Vecchio. “We wish you well.”
