Three-term incumbent Bruce Adams will be running unopposed for a fourth term as Democratic first selectman in Kent.

He and his running mate, Selectman Micheal van Valkenburg, were endorsed July 27 during the Democratic Party caucus.

“I was on the fence about running,” Adams admitted, “but I decided there is enough unfinished business that I would like to see through.

“A lot of good things have happened in the six years I’ve been in office,” he added. “I hope to say the same about the next two.”

Adams noted several projects and issues he wants to bring to fruition, including establishing public restrooms in the town; re-roofing the covered Bull’s Bridge; and the Schaghticoke tribal recognition issue, which has been ongoing for many years.

Republicans caucused July 28 without producing a candidate for first selectman.

Jeffrey Parkin was endorsed to run on the Republican ticket for selectman.
