FARMINGTON – Brian St. Onge was elected to a three-year position on the Board of Selectmen after winning a four-way race with 167 votes Tuesday.
David Connelly received 155 votes, Ann Titus has 153 and Joshua Carlsen earned 35.
Incumbents Penny Morin and Joe Pitre will continue to serve on the School Board after receiving 224 and 184 votes, respectively. Three other candidates sought two three-year terms on the board, including Brandy Sanger, who had 155 votes, Timothy Moody, with 133, and Joshua Carlson, with 99.
Kathy Seaver was reelected as School District Clerk, but also received the most write-in votes for District Treasurer. As she may decline, officials will have to find another person interested in the position.
All district issues – including the $17,075,497 operating budget and three collective bargaining agreements – and the town's zoning amendments passed at the polls Tuesday
The town must dig through the write-in votes to see who will serve as the new moderator and for at least one seat on the Trustee of Trust Funds after Paul Parker received enough write-in votes to win a three-year term and the two-year term.
Susan Loker received four write-in votes to win the one-year seat as a Trustee of Trust Funds.
