LISBON – Three selectmen, E. Charles Smith, Layne Curtis and Michael Bowie were elected to at-large seats on the new Town Council Saturday, with 336, 333 and 321 votes respectively.
The ballots defeated Jeffrey Ganong, with 217, and Richard Main, with 189. The terms will be for one, two and three years, based on the number of votes received.
In the three-way District 1 Council race, Gina Mason and Janet Henry were elected for two-and one-year terms, 127 and 117, defeating Pete Reed, 108.
Running unopposed in District 2 were Dale Crafts, 260, and Norma Wells, 117, for two- and one-year terms respectively.
Seven new members were elected to the new Budget Advisory Board, all by write-in votes, as there were no candidates listed on the ballot. Taking the three at-large seats were Richard Main, 7, Paul Chizmar 7, Herbert “Pete” Reed, 6, and Jeffrey Ganong, 6. It is expected Reed will decline the seat in order to remain on the school board, but this was not confirmed.
In District 1, Carol Shimko and Hal Chase were elected with three votes each. In District 2, Layne Curtis, Norris Ingersoll and Steve Curtis received three votes each for two seats in Ward 2. It is expected Layne Curtis will decline due to being elected as an at-large councilor.
A total of 541 votes were cast, 111 of which were write-ins, Town Clerk Twila Lycette said. There are total of 6,680 registered voters.
