The coronavirus crisis has nearly halted the local economy — including media advertising. That means local, independent news organizations such as ours must fight for our own survival while continuing to provide critical news and information as a public service during this unprecedented situation.

Voters heading to the polls in Essex on Tuesday, Nov. 5 will select candidates for municipal offices. The ballots will determine the candidates for the boards of Selectmen and Finance; all other positions are uncontested.

First Selectman Norman Needleman (D) faces a challenge from Matt Fleming (R). The unsuccessful candidate in that race will compete for a seat on the BOS against incumbent selectmen Bruce Glowac (R) and Stacia Rice-Libby (D).

The Board of Finance race has four candidates competing for two six-year terms: Incumbent Democrats Mary-Louise Polo and vice-chair W. Campbell Hudson face Republican challengers Carolyn E. Field and Philip J. Beckman.

Profiles of all candidates who’ve chosen to participate are in our Online Voters Guide*, along with all the Courier’s elections coverage and political letters, can be found at

On Nov. 5 Essex polls open from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m. at Town Hall, 29 West Avenue.

For more information, call the Registrars of Voters at 860-767-4340 ext. 142.

*Candidates who have not yet participated in the guide should send an email with subject line “voter guide” to ASAP.
