Rivers won for councilor at large, both in uncontested races.

Susan P. Prewandowski won unopposed for a Raynham seat on the regional committee. Bridgewater also had three seats available for trustees of the public library; winners were Janet B. Dye, Nancy J. Sarno, and write-in Denise M. Sheppard.
