Two new selectmen in; incumbent out in Cohasset


Cohasset voters turned out one incumbent and brought in two new selectmen in Saturday’s election, which drew 30 percent of the electorate in a four-way race for two seats. Stephen Gaumer, chairman of the Capital Budget Committee, garnered 906 votes, followed by former selectwoman Karen Quigley with 805 votes, according to Town Clerk Carol St. Pierre. J. Russell Bonetti, chairman of the Cohasset Community Preservation Committee, finished third with 801 votes, and incumbent Selectman Leland Jenkins received 750. Quigley and Bonetti had pledged to change the direction of town government, with Quigley saying after the vote: “One of the first things I want to do is put out an advertisement for a new town manager.”
