New selectmen elected


Finance Committee member Leilani Dalpe and Emergency Medical Services Committee member John Knowlton were elected as the town’s newest selectmen on Tuesday, with 1,352 and 1,423 votes respectively. They bested Diane Stewart, also of the Finance Committee, and newcomer Donald Jonah, who received 1,249 and 505 votes. The seats became available after board chairman Al Rullo and member Steven Spataro chose not to run for reelection. In the School Committee race, incumbent Sara Cederholm and Community Preservation Committee member Maureen Franco ran unopposed, receiving 1,819 and 1,995 votes, respectively. Gas and Electric Commissioner Michael Solimini was ousted by challenger and former Commissioner and G&E employee Daniel Farley, while Thomas Murphy retained his seat. Nancy Thomas narrowly edged out Ed Gosson to fill an unexpired Housing Authority term left when board member Edward Medeiros resigned.
