Town election turnover


Dorothy Fulginiti and Daniel W. Smith bested challengers Carol Nestler and Michael Maloney for two available seats on the town’s Board of Selectmen last week in an election that saw a turnout of about 2,700 voters. The seats opened up when current board members Ellen Barlow and Sean Noonan opted not to run. Fulginiti earned 1,574 votes, followed by Smith with 1,231, Nestler with 960, and Maloney with 778 votes, according to unofficial results. However, Nestler, the current Finance Committee chairwoman, received 37 write-in votes to retake her seat on that board. Resident Pat Goodman was also elected to the finance panel with 55 write-in votes. In other races, William Anderson was elected to the Board of Health seat being vacated by member Scott Aronson, beating challenger Robert MacLennon by a margin of 1,218 votes to 810 votes. Running unopposed were Thomas Downey for the Housing Authority, Donna Abelli and Frederick Isleib III for the School Committee, and Elaine Hanson for her current seat on the Finance Committee.
