Currently serving as chair of the Yarmouth Finance Committee
Yarmouth Port resident Norman Holcomb recently announced that he will be running for the Yarmouth Board of Selectmen. Holcomb, the chairman of the Yarmouth Finance Committee will be seeking one of the two available seats during the May 15th town elections. The terms of E. Suzanne McAuliffe and Erik Tolley end in 2012. Yarmouth selectmen are elected to three-year terms.
On his candidacy, Holcomb said, "Our Town must continue to offer low taxes, without override votes, while providing quality education to our children in a harmonious and financially stable relationship with our Dennis partners. We must work to provide Town services that are within our means and which do not place unsustainable future burdens on our residents' shoulders. Yarmouth and Cape Cod are both natural and historic treasures of national significance. Our residents understand that legacy, and are already providing tax support for the preservation of our local historic and natural resources. We need to seek regional, state and national support to assist our efforts."
Holcomb, a retired CPA, is a UMASS graduate. Prior to serving two years on the Yarmouth Finance Committee, Holcomb served as a selectman in Killington, VT for nine years. He is a past president of the Killington-Pico Rotary and most recently sold a successful accounting business he established in 1999, according to a release.
