Arlington’s town election will include a rematch between Selectmen Chairman Kevin Greeley and challenger Maria Romano.

The two selectmen candidates will be the only names on the ballot in April after the deadline to submit nomination papers passed Tuesday.

Greeley beat Romano in 2010 when he won about 55 percent of the votes to Romano’s 39 percent. A third candidate, Nathan Bosdet, also received 6 percent of the vote that year.

Greeley has been a selectman for 24 years, but has been battling health problems in recent years and is also trying to pay off more than $180,000 in back taxes to the Internal Revenue Service. Romano has been a vocal opponent of the town’s proposal to reduce the number of vehicle lanes and add bicycle lanes to Massachusetts Avenue in East Arlington.

Arlington voters will also have a choice in the race for two three-year terms on the School Committee, as incumbents Kirsi Allison-Ampe and Judson Pierce will be running against challenger Michael Buckley of Nicod Street.

School Committee member Paul Schlictman will run unopposed in an election to fill a one-year term on the committee. No other town-wide seats feature contested races.

Arlington’s town election will be Saturday, April 6.
