Ahead of the November municipal elections, town committees are starting to meet to nominate candidates. In Sherman, Democrats have selected Don Lowe to run as First Selectman. Ashleigh Blake was nominated last night to be his running mate.
The 57-year old Lowe served as a Selectman for two terms starting in 2004. He has served on other boards and commissions in Sherman in the past.
The Republican caucus is scheduled for next week, and incumbent Clay Cope is anticipated to be the nominee. The First Selectman announced his intentions to run for a third term back in March.
