In Nashua, a 14 percent voter turnout is projected
“I have done everything humanly possible to get people to show up,” said Alderman Dan Moriarty of Ward 9, who is seeking an at-large position on the Board of Aldermen. “Team Moriarty has visited 4,200 houses, so we have done our part.”
“I hope it is closer to 8,000,” said Moriarty, adding he is optimistic about securing an alderman seat. He plans on gathering at Napa East to collect the election results once the polls close tonight.
“If we get 7,500 voters I am going to be kind of surprised,” said Deane, adding Bergeron is typically spot-on when it comes to predicting voter turnout.
“Win or lose, it is a decision by the citizens. If it isn’t meant to be, I fully understand. That is the beauty of government and the election process,” he added.
“It is a right and a privilege to vote in this country, and if people are not happy with local government, now is the time to exercise your right,” said Johnson.
In Ward 1, incumbent Kathryn Vitale is taking on Sean McGuinness.
In Ward 2, incumbent Richard Dowd is facing off against Elenore Casey Crane.
In Ward 4, incumbent Arthur Craffey is up against state Rep. Pamela Brown.
In Ward 5, incumbent Michael Tabacsko is taking on Michael Soucy.
Ward 7 is the only aldermanic race that is uncontested, with Alderman June Caron seeking re-election.
In Ward 8, incumbent Mary Ann Melizzi-Golja is up against Jack Currier.
Other significant races on the ballot include four open seats on the Nashua Board of Education. There are six candidates seeking spots, including incumbent David Murotake, incumbent Dennis Ryder, incumbent Sandra Ziehm, incumbent Thomas Vaughan, Dotty Oden and George Farrington.
