The recent addition of Robert P. Mascali to the race for Falmouth Select Board brings the candidate pool to three who will be vying to fill one vacancy.

Mr. Mascali, of Oxbow Road, is joined in the race by Onjale B. Scott Price of Pinecrest Beach Drive, East Falmouth, and Michael G. Heylin of Cliffwood Lane, Falmouth, who have already turned in their nomination papers.

Ms. Price is the chief operating officer for Mizar Imaging in Woods Hole, and serves on the Woods Hole Diversity Advisory Committee and Falmouth Affordable Housing Committee.

Mr. Heylin is a Precinct Five Town Meeting member. He ran for the select board last year and has also run for the planning board and Falmouth Library Board of Trustees.

Mr. Mascali is an attorney with Bourget Law Group in North Falmouth.

Christina H. Brodie of Salt Hay Road and Margaret M. Souza of Curley Boulevard, North Falmouth, had pulled nomination papers but did not return them, Town Clerk Michael C. Palmer said.

Incumbent Douglas H. Jones is not seeking reelection.

The deadline to turn in nomination papers for town offices was Tuesday, March 30. The election is May 18.

The only other contested town-wide race on the ballot is for a five-year term on the housing authority. Incumbent commissioner Patricia Favulli is being challenged by Michael B. Galasso, a member of the Falmouth Economic Development and Industrial Corporation and an affordable housing developer.

Three candidates have returned nomination papers for three seats on the school committee, including incumbents Kelly A. Welch of Jones Road and Natalie T. Kanellopoulos of Stanhope Road. William J. Dorfner of Alcott Road, East Falmouth, is also running for a seat on the committee.

Other incumbents whose terms expire this year are library trustees Kathie C. Mount and Jenifer E. Alai. There are three open seats. Lucy C. Helfrich of Eli Lane is also running.

Planning board members Robert J. Leary and Charlotte Harris and Town Moderator David T. Vieira are running unopposed to keep their seats.
