ROCKLAND — The ballot for the Nov. 2 Rockland municipal elections is set as the deadline for nomination papers to be filed passed Sept. 20.

Incumbent Rockland City Councilor Ben Dorr and challenger Nicole Lynn Kalloch turned in their nomination papers and qualified for the ballot. Henry Hustus did not return his papers.

Dorr is the co-owner/operator of Curator on Main Street. He is completing his first three-year  term on the Council.

Kalloch, a Main Street resident, is plant manager at Sierra Peaks manufacturing plant on Pleasant Street in Rockland and is also an office manager for her husband’s contracting business — J.K. Kalloch. She is graduate of Maine Maritime Academy in Castine with a degree in international business and logistics.

Kalloch said she is excited to bring a new way of thinking to the City Council, stressing her skill in planning and budgeting.

“I want to focus on bringing businesses to Rockland,” Kalloch said, adding that she has seen how there are challenges when businesses come before the city.

Kelli McCannell of Cedar Street filed papers to seek one of two three-year seats on the Regional School Unit 13 Board. McCannell is the executive director with Hardy Girls Healthy Women, a nonprofit that engages young people in social action.

Two other people took out papers for the three-years — Jason White and Tanja Barbour — but did not turn them in to the city clerk’s office.

The two seats are being vacated by incumbent Regional School Unit 13 board members Tom Peaco and Doug Curtis Jr., who said they would not run again.

Rockland has five seats on the 10-member RSU 13 Board. The election is Nov. 2, although absentee ballots will be available during the previous month leading up to election day.

The Rockland City Council will get to appoint a replacement after the November election for a three-year seat since only one candidate filed for the two seats up for election. The person will serve until November 2022.

David Martz, who was appointed in July by the Council to the seat vacated earlier this year by Gerald Weinand, filed his papers and qualified for the ballot.

One seat on the Rockland Port District is also up for election. A seat held by Noah Barnes is up for election. The term is for five years. Barnes filed papers and qualified for the ballot.
