Volunteers: An integral part of Weston's Town Government

Volunteers are, and always have been, an essential piece to Weston's Town Government. It is volunteers, elected or appointed, who make policy, develop and shape various Town projects, give of their time and talents, and who help make this the special place that Weston is to all of us.

Have you ever thought about how you can give back to the community? Do you have a special talent or skill that you would be willing to share? We encourage you to contact us and make your interest known.


Elected Boards and Town Caucus

Elected candidates are nominated during the Town Caucus, which will be held on March 5th at 7:00 p.m. in Town Hall. At this event, Weston residents express interest in serving in one of the many elected seats that are available. Weston voters in attendance nominate the individual they would like to see run for the office and if enough votes are received, the individual(s) becomes the Caucus Nominee and is placed on the ballot for the Annual Town Election (May 5th).


A list of elected boards and the elected Town Officials is available on the Town's website. A guide to the duties and responsibilities for each of the elected boards is also available online. If you are interested in running for an elected seat and have additional questions, please contact the Town Clerk at 781-786-5010.
