The one contested race in Wednesday’s town election pits incumbent Selectman Bradford Morse against Planning Board member Michael Murphy. Morse, president of Double M Cranberry Co. in town, served on the Planning Board for 11 years before becoming a selectman nine years ago. Murphy is owner of Murphy’s Auto Salvage Inc. in Wareham, and was a selectman 18 years ago, he said, and served on the Finance Committee before that. Murphy said if he wins the selectman’s race, he will also continue to serve on the Planning Board. Voting will be held at the Rochester Senior Center on Dexter Lane from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
