Incumbents win in town election


The incumbents have it, as determined by voters at the annual town election late last month. Charles Bear beat out challenger Michael Doyle, 751 to 675, for a three-year seat on the Board of Selectmen, while David Powell garnered 657 votes to Mary Chick’s 509 for a five-year seat on the planning board. In two other contested spots on the ballot, Charles Colby Jr. beat out David Balkus for a one-year unexpired term as constable, 751 to 414, and Jeffrey Janvrin narrowly beat out David Elwell, 414 to 412, with a third contender, H. Russell Iwanowicz, garnering 226 votes. Meanwhile, several other incumbents ran unopposed and were reinstated, including Robin Williams for a three-year term on the Triton Regional School Committee; Peter Murphy for a three-year term as assessor; Alba Gouldthorpe for a three-year term on the board of health; James Cunningham for four years as constable; Charles Colby as fish commissioner for three years; Peter Hollis as tree warden for one year; and Douglas Noyes as trustee of the first settlers burial ground for three years. Newcomer Richard Passeri was also voted in as a library trustee for three years. The town saw a 29 percent voter turnout.
