Former Sen. Barnes back on Raymond Board of Selectmen
Ed French earned a three-year seat and a two-year seat on the budget committee and was also elected town treasurer, all by write-in votes. He received 175 write-in votes for the position of town treasurer, 22 for the three-year seat on the budget committee and 14 votes for the two-year seat.
Joshua S. Mann was also elected to a three-year seat with 647 votes. The committee will have to appoint the third open position as a result of a tie between write-in candidates West Coates and Auclair, who each received nine votes.
The town's total proposed operating budget of $7,842,014 passed by a vote of 557-328.
Voters rejected a proposal to re-open Carroll Lake Beach on the Lamprey River at a cost of $15,000 by a vote of 477-400. The Beach was closed in 2006.
Voters did pass a citizen's petition warrant article calling for a ban on smoking on recreational property, including Riverside Park, Cammett Field and the Town Common, by a vote of 557-321.
