BELMONT – With 169 votes, Ronald Cormier won the three-man race for selectman, while longtime resident George Condodemetraky lost two elections in the same race.
Finishing second in the selectman's race was Donald P. McLelland Sr. with 151 votes, while Condodemetraky had 99.
The four-person race for two seats on the planning board was won by Peter Harris with 259 votes and Rick Segalini, who had 208 votes. Doug Sanborn had 146 votes, and Condodemetraky had 102.
Voters also approved 34 of 38 ballot questions.
Question 2, which asked for a Historic Demolition Review Ordinance that would have applied to all buildings in town 50 years or older, was defeated by a vote of 289-124.
Question 6, which would have changed the position of town treasurer from an elected post to an appointed one, failed, 277-132.
Also failing was Question 9, which would have authorized the town's conservation commission to spend money on properties in another town. The vote was 277-132.
Question 10, which would have authorized the conservation commission to spend money on contributions for "qualified organizations for the purchase of property interests," and would leave the "property interest" to the qualifies organization, failed, 200-193.
