I think this election cycle in Stoneham was remarkably awesome. We had many contested elections for important town roles. The candidates were all phenomenal. They debated issues, priorities and skills, but I didn’t see any meanness or personal attacks on display. Voters in town were engaged in thinking through the race and what it meant for the town (although I’d love to see higher turnout numbers next time!)
I’d like to offer my gratitude to all those who ran, who offered their perspective and who were willing to spend their time and energy making this town a better place. Thank you!
That said, here are the winners of the contested races!
