FALMOUTH — Business owner Chris Orestis formally announced Tuesday that he is a candidate for Town Council.

Orestis is the first candidate to file the required nomination papers with the town. He is a Maine native and the owner of Life Care Funding Group, a company that assists seniors and their families in finding resources to pay for long-term care. He and his wife, Grace, have four boys in the Falmouth schools.

Two council seats are up for election in June. Vice Chairwoman Teresa Pierce has indicated she will run again, but she has not filed papers. Councilor Cathy Breen is prevented from seeking re-election because she has reached the limit of two consecutive three-year terms.

The deadline to file papers to get on the June 14 ballot is May 2.
