OXFORD — Three candidates for a seat on the Board of Selectmen will meet in a forum at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 6, at the Oxford Recreation Center, 223 King St.

Mark Blaquiere, Dana Dillingham and Ernest “Ed” Knightly are vying for the seat being vacated by Roger Jackson.

Blaquiere, is a captain and per diem firefighter with the Paris Fire Department.
