Hats in the ring in Westborough, Part II

WESTBOROUGH

George Barrette, chairman of the Board of Selectmen, says has decided not to run for re-election because of a recent job promotion that has reduced his free time.

Barrette has been named vice president of sales and marketing for the East Coast at Spectera, a Baltimore-based company that markets vision and eye-care plans.

"I don't have any interest in being a selectmen in name only. That's not my style," says Barrette, who is serving his second term on the board. "I am absolutely not retiring from public service. Once my schedule settles down I'll re-involve myself in Westborough."
