According to a friend who watched Stoneham TV while they reported election results (note to self: figure out where these things happen and pay attention in advance), the Stoneham election has been called. Since I was out there encouraging all y’all to vote, I figure I should tell you how it turned out!
– Caroline Colarusso
– Tom Boussy
– Larry Means
I never did figure out how to vote for planning board or the other contested position. If anyone has advice on what I should have done to be informed, I’m all ears!
The margin of victory was very narrow (according to what I heard). Only about 100 votes made the difference between the visions which will guide our town for the next several years. For all those who turned out – your vote was critically important and made a real difference. Thank you for doing your part to keep democracy a reflection of the will of the people.
Congrats to our newly elected leaders! I have confidence you’ll do an amazing job. Thanks to all who ran and who declared their willingness to serve their community. It’s a difficult and thankless task, and I’m grateful we have people willing to spend time and effort in both pursuing and executing it!
PS – Actual more official unofficial tallies here – now with real numbers! http://stoneham.wickedlocal.com/article/20150407/NEWS/150406930
