In addition to national and state contests, three-quarters of Rutland voters will have to decide a House race Tuesday and they all have to decide on a bond question and two building sales.
There is no legislative race in District 5-1. Rep. Peter Fagan, R-Rutland, is running unopposed. The district votes at the Godnick Adult Center on Deer Street.
In District 5-2, which votes at Christ the King School on Killington Avenue, Rep. Margaret “Peg” Andrews, D-Rutland, is up against Republican Larry “Cooper” Cupoli.
In District 5-3, which votes at the American Legion on Washington Street, Republican John Mattison Jr. is challenging Rep. Herb Russell, D-Rutland.
In District 5-4, which votes at Calvary Bible Church on Meadow Lane, voters have two newcomers to choose from in Democrat Sherri Durgin-Campbell and Republican Douglas Gage.
Next, voters across the city will be asked if they want to approve a $5.5 million bond for a new water filtration system in order to make sure city water meets EPA-mandated health standards. If the bond fails, the city will instead use an alternate disinfectant to comply with the federal regulations.
Finally, two separate ballot items ask voters to authorize the School Board to sell the Watkins Avenue building and the Dana building.
