New Durham moves away from traditional town meeting format
NEW DURHAM – Residents overwhelmingly decided to enact the provisions of Senate Bill 2 after Article 2 passed 435-95 Tuesday. As a result, the town will discuss matters during a deliberative session about a month before residents decide on issues at the polls next March.
Selectman David Bickford was reelected after receiving 342 votes in a three-way race. Rudolph Rosiello and Robert Kroepel received 169 and 16 votes, respectively.
All other town positions were uncontested.
In the Gov. Wentworth Regional School District, incumbent Stacy Trites will represent Wolfeboro for another three years after defeating Robert Jones, 2,379 to 800.
Gov. Wentworth residents also approved the tuition agreement with Middleton – as proposed in Article 4 - 3,033 to 790.
As a result, Middleton students in grades 7-12 will attend school in Wolfeboro since Middleton voters approved three interconnected articles to withdraw from Farmington schools, accept the tuition agreement and take out a $6,592,500 bond to build a new school.
