Astorino, Ciskowski Win Seats on Cheshire Selectmen
By Jack Guerino On: 08:19PM / Tuesday May 06, 2014

CHESHIRE, Mass. — Incumbent Paul Astorino will hold his selectman's seat and Robert Ciskowski will join him for a one year term.

Astorino defeated political newcomer Richard Scholz by narrow victory of 47 votes. Astorino had 288 votes and Scholz had 241.

Scholz plans to run again in 2016.

"I will continue my effort to expand the select board to five, change the culture of town government, and run for a three-year term in 2016," Scholz said.

Cheshire native and former Selectman Robert Ciskowski defeated James Boyle and Karmen Field-Mitchell with 275 votes, more than half of all the votes cast in the race. Boyle garnered 164 and Field-Mitchell had 86.

Ciskowski will hold the chair for one year and replace the retired Selectwoman Gloria Lewis.

Michael Biagini Jr. won a two-year position on the Board of Health and defeated James Geary, 273-244.

Biagini’s son, Michael Biagini, ran for water commissioner, but was defeated by Rick Gurney 304-217.

The total number of registered voters was 2,245 and 544 registered voters, or 24 percent, cast ballots.
