Bertschmann and Graziano Win School Committee, Only 4 of 10 Ballot Questions Pass, Harris Wins Library Trustee

1829 Voters participated, which is slightly higher than last May’s Town Election, but still a fairly low turnout. We tried to accurately transcribe the results as the Town Clerk read them on HCAM-TV, but please forgive any typos. Thank you to HCAM for covering the election results live every year!
