Heath drops out, endorses Helm for selectman
In a Facebook post last night, candidate for Plymouth Selectman Mike Heath withdrew from the race and endorsed fellow candidate Harry Helm. Helm will now face with incumbent and Board Chair Selectman Kenneth Tavares.
Heath wrote in his post, "I am going to step aside and let the candidate who has more experience, is better informed and has the best chance at overtaking the incumbent selectman for his seat."
Only one selectman seat is up for election this May.
In a subquesnt post accepting Heath's endorsement Helm added, "Mike and I share strongly the view that our Town needs to change direction for our residents, taxpayers and employees. And we share many of the same thoughts on how to go about getting that job done."
