Norton Town Hall.

NORTON — Another resident is pursuing a run in the Sept. 12 special election to fill a vacancy on the select board.

Megan Artz of Reservoir Street has pulled nomination papers for the seat left vacant by the recent resignation of Michael Flaherty, Town Clerk Lucia Longhurst said.

Previously, Frank Parker of Allen Drive took out papers.

Parker has returned papers and the signatures have been certified.

Whoever is elected will serve until next spring’s annual town election, when Flaherty’s term expires.

Flaherty, who had been the board’s vice chairman, had to resign because he moved to Mansfield.

The deadline has passed to take out nomination papers.

Early voting ballot applications for the Sept. 12 election are available through the town website,
