John J. Cantwell, a member of the Marshfield Board of Assessors and father of state Representative James M. Cantwell, a Marshfield Democrat, survived a challenge from John W. Dillon in Tuesday’s election, with 2,377 votes to Dillon’s 1,199, according to unofficial results from the town clerk’s office. It was the only contested race on the ballot, but two write-in candidates vied for a position on the Board of Health; incumbent Tyler Nims succeeded, with 212 votes to Sean Collins’ 9, , also in unofficial results. Uncontested winners were Matthew J. McDonough for the Board of Selectmen; Gerald J. Maher for the Board of Health; Nancy P. Currie and Katherine M. Tracey for School Committee; Antonio Pina for Planning Board; Stephen W. Hocking for the Board of Public Works; John J. Daley, Jr. for the Housing Authority board; William J. Dunn and Sharon Robbins for non-veterans’ seats as trustees of veterans’ memorials; and Kevin J. Feyler for a veteran’s seat on the same board.
