Test 3

Plainville planning board candidates make their case

PLAINVILLE - Voters will head to the public safety building behind town hall on Monday to decide the outcome of a two-man race for one seat on the planning board and whether or not to raise their taxes $1.95 million beyond the limits of Proposition 2 1/2.

The question was placed on the ballot by a 2-1 vote of the board of selectmen on February 25.

Voters rejected a $3.25 million request last June by a vote 1,479 to 1,030.

The only contested race on the ballot features Justin Alexander and Christopher Desprez. The two men joined North TV executive director Peter Gay earlier this week to record a virtual election of “Inside Government.”

Each candidate was asked why residents should give them their vote.
