Selectman Kevin Moran announced last week that he will not seek re-election in the upcoming town elections in May, according to the Sun Chronicle

Moran, a Hyde Park Native, had only served on the Animal Welfare Committee before being elected to the board in 2008. He said that he had a "gut feeling" to throw his hat in the ring then, just as he has the same feeling to step down. He said he wants to spend more time with his sons, 17 and 14. 

Chairman Jess Aptowitz, whose term also ends in May, decided to run for a third, three-year term. He hasn't decided which issues to focus on during his campaign, but said that selectmen must keep things moving in the right direction going forward.

There can be rumors there, and there's valid info there too- but that's part of the purpose- to try to clear out what is true and what's rumor. I mention the site because there's room to discuss things in a format easier to follow than on Patch or elsewhere. You can read here on Patch and you won't have all the info, either, and people are just as likely to post rumors on here as tm or anywhere else. It's the nature of the beast when you have people who have an opinion and are trying to find things out. It's ok if it's not for you, but I like it just fine and will mention it if warranted. People have no problem discussing or recommending local biz or whatnot, this is the same idea, really. Anyways, if you feel it's too 'rumorish and extreme', maybe you could contribute over there and even things out a little! I won't bug you any more about it though :)

TalkMansfield is the worst, especially that immature people that try to push it and insult fellow residents (not you Tina)

How do you know i'm on there when i use a top-secret pseudonymn? lol Anyways, there's a lot of opinionated people and a lot of strong feelings about stuff. People need a place for that. I usually have more than my share of things to say, for sure!

Glad to see Patch hanging in there even if we get too many national stories.
