NORWAY – Oxford County Republicans will gather tonight, at the Norway Congregational Church on Main Street to choose a nominee to recommend to Gov. John Baldacci for appointment to serve out the term of Oxford County District 3 Commissioner Albert “Jim” Carey, who recently resigned due to ill health.

Only official delegates elected at town caucuses in 2004 or their representatives will be eligible to participate in the selection process, but all Republicans are encouraged to attend and make their views known.

Under the law, Carey, a Republican, must be succeeded by a member of the same political party.

Several candidates for the post are expected to be present for consideration at the meeting.

The social hour will begin at 5:30 p.m. followed by a ham dinner at 6:30 p.m. The election will take place at the business meeting after dinner.
