Seven candidates seeking election or reelection to local boards have pulled nomination papers from the Sandwich Town Clerk’s office in the past two weeks.

Most are incumbents, but there is one newcomer. He is David Liskowski, of East Sandwich, and he is seeking a three-year term on the Board of Health.

The incumbents include Sandwich School Committee candidates Kevin R. Sareault and Burton E. Fisher. Both men are seeking three-year seats on the school board.

Planning board incumbent Jeffrey R. Picard is seeking another three-year term; Nicholas E Fernandes, Jr. is seeking another three-year term on the Board of Assessors; Nanette B. Perkins would like to serve another five-year term on the Sandwich Housing Authority; and John M. Faherty Jr. would like to serve another three years as town constable.

Town Clerk Taylor D. White said candidates have until March 18 to pull papers, gather the 50 signatures needed from registered Sandwich voters and return everything to Mr. White’s office at 145 Main Street.

“Interested candidates should get the process going as soon as possible,” Mr. White said, adding that no one has pulled papers yet for the two high-profile openings on the Sandwich Board of Selectmen. The town moderator’s post is also up for grabs this year.

Here is a list of all the positions that will be on this year’s local ballot:

• 1 – Three-year term on the board of assessors

• 1 – Three-year term on the board of health

• 1 – Three-year term as the town moderator

• 1 – Three-year term on the board of selectmen
