Four candidates will vie for an interim position on the Tisbury select board, after member Larry Gomez resigned from his seat earlier this year, citing health issues.

Tisbury town clerk Hillary Conklin confirmed that a quartet of town residents had taken out papers and returned the requisite number of signatures by Tuesday’s deadline to get on the ballot for the Jan. 24 special election.

The election winner will serve out the remainder of Mr. Gomez’s term, which expires in May of 2023.

According to Ms. Conklin, the candidates are:

•Christina Colarusso, 32, who works as a marine engineer and serves on the town’s sewer advisory committee.

•Abbe Burt, 78, who is retired and serves on the town’s affordable housing committee and the community preservation committee.

•Bruce Campbell, 80, who is self-employed.

•Donald Rose, 2nd, 65, who is a retired deputy sheriff and serves on the board for the town’s council on aging.

“They’re all good, they all have enough signatures,” Ms. Conklin said.

The Tisbury select board has had only two members, John Cahill and Roy Cutrer, since Mr. Gomez’s resignation in September.

The select board race will be the sole item on the Jan. 24 special election ballot. The election will take place at the town’s emergency services building from noon to 8 p.m.

The town will also host a race for the same seat in May.

“This is just to fill the unexpired term,” Ms. Conklin said. “Then we have to have someone run again for three years to get back on the cycle.”
