Two more people pulled papers for the town election this week.

A newcomer to the Sandwich political scene, Mark Callahan of Gully Lane has pulled nomination papers for planning board.

Also pulling papers this week was Joseph Maruca, who is seeking reelection to the Weston Memorial Fund’s board of trustees.

Nomination papers are required if candidates want their names to appear on the ballot for the 2020 annual town election, which will be held on May 7, according to Town Clerk Taylor D. White.

Anyone wanting to run for office has less than three weeks left to make up their mind.

“Candidates will have until March 19 to return their papers with at least 50 signatures from registered Sandwich voters nominating them for office,” Mr. White has said.

Here are the openings for local office:

• 1 – Three-year term on the Board of Assessors

• 1 – Three-year term on the Board of Health

• 2 – Three-year terms on the Board of Selectman

• 1 – Three-year term as Constable
