North Reading

North Reading voters elect uncontested officials

About 19 percent of the town’s 10,864 registered voters went to the polls on April 30 for the town election and US Senate primary, according to Town Clerk Barbara Stats. The town election included voting for several open seats, none of which were contested, at least in terms of candidates listed on the ballot. However, in the race for School Committee, several declared write-in candidates competed with candidate Melvin K. Webster for two available three-year terms. Webster finished on top with 1,376 votes. With 516 votes, Janene C. Imbriano emerged the winner among the write-in candidates for the second seat on the School Committee, besting Michael N. Kushakji (101 votes) and Joseph R. Veno (103 votes). In the special state primary for the US Senate seat vacated by John F. Kerry, Democrat Edward J. Markey, a veteran US representative, and Republican Gabriel E. Gomez, a former Navy pilot and SEAL, narrowly won the support of their respective parties in North Reading. Markey bested fellow US Representative Stephen F. Lynch, 666 votes to 612. Gomez captured 390 votes, nearly as many votes as his challengers earned combined. US Attorney Michael J. Sullivan received 279 votes and state Representative Daniel B. Winslow got 120.
