This version corrects party names and includes a more detailed look at placement of candidates for the upcoming election.
You won’t hear the candidates talking about ballot placement, but don’t tell that to the handful of candidates that joined the on Monday to establish the ballot for the upcoming elections on Monday afternoon.
Democrats will be first on the ballot with Republicans opposing and will be placed in the following order, as selected through a random lottery.
After separate party caucuses determined last month who will be on the ballot, the lottery Monday further set the table. Democratic Town Committee Campaign Manager Anthony D'Angelo said he's excited about the upcoming election, believing his party to be well poised for victory in 2011.
"I'm not too concerned about who is where on the ballot, as long as we're getting our message across," D'Angelo said. "I'm excited that we have a mix of experienced people and new people with new ideas. Our basic goal is to give more of a say to the people."
