Republicans keep control; Only one charter revision question passes

For the Board of Finance, Republicans retain control four to two, with Edward Pocock Jr. earning the most votes, with 4,937. Republicans John Leary, James Coleman and Joseph Labieniec also won, along with Democrats Kevin Beaudoin and Sandra Feld.

Meanwhile, the Water Board remained the same with Democrats Angelina SantaMaria and Thomas Murphy joining Republican Gregory Klimaszewski.

This year, voters also had the final say on three proposed charter revisions. Only one of the three proposals, the questions dealing with contracts for public works and transfers of appropriations, passed.

Both the proposal to turn the Board of Police and Fire Commissioners into advisory boards and the question dealing with the division of purchases did not pass.

According to the Town Clerk’s office, 33.8 percent of the town’s 25,824 registered voters made their way out to the polls Tuesday.
