Charlton Election Results

  • My aunt Donna, who was running unopposed for Cemetery Commission, won with 548 votes.
  • (The other unopposed candidates also won, of course.)
  • For Selectmen seat #1, incumbent Rick Swensen defeated 18-year-old challenger Joe Szafarowicz 458-286.
  • For Selectmen seat #2, challenger David Singer defeated incumbent Jack Bacon 412-343.
  • The question to change the position of Town Clerk from an elected to an appointed position was defeated, 308-374.
  • Mr. Singer, who just won a selectmen’s seat, was the Town Moderator. The Selectmen may be appointing a successor to moderate town meetings until the next election. I’m thinking I’ll be writing them a letter this weekend asking to be appointed. I’ll also be re-reading Town Meeting Time: A Handbook of Parliamentary Law.
