POLAND — There are three new faces on the Board of Selectmen afterMonday’s special election to replace three recalled in January.

Janice Kimball, with 364 votes, and Stanley Tetenman, with 310 votes, were elected to two-year terms.

They replace James Fernald and Lawrence “Larry” Moreau, who were recalled and failed to regain their seats Monday with 185 and 186 votes, respectively.

The fifth candidate seeking one of the two-year seats, Michelle Arsenault, received 98 votes.

Walter Gallagher, with 316 votes, was elected to a one-month term, replacing Wendy Sanborn, who was recalled. Gallagher outpolled Sandra Knowles, who received 265 votes.

Gallagher and Knowles, plus a couple other candidates, will be on the ballot for the April 5 election for one of the two three-year seats to be filled.

Fernald, Moreau and Sanborn lost their seats after they voted last October to remove Rosemary Kulow as town manager. Selectmen Steve Robinson and Lester Stevens voted against dismissing Kulow and were not subject to being recalled.
