Lanesborough Re-elects Incumbents
By Andy McKeever On: 02:12PM / Wednesday June 18, 2014
Not many people made it to the ballot box on Tuesday.
LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — With a ballot full of incumbents running uncontested, a small turnout reelected eight town officials.
 
Only 140 of the town's 2,095 registered voters made it to the polls on Tuesday. But, that was enough. 
 
Those voters put Henry Sayers back on the Board of Selectmen; Amy Szczepaniak as a cemetery trustee; Christine Galib on the Finance Committee; Regina Dilego on the School Committee; Ronald Tinkham on the Planning Board; Robert Reilly as moderator and Jane Stevens and Prudence Barton as library trustees.
 
A seat on both the Planning Board and Finance Committee went with no candidates.
 
Three Sewer Commission seats and a tree warden position was listed on the ballot but with no candidates. Town meeting had already approved turning those positions into appointed, so any votes there were irrelevant. 
 
The number of ballots was dramatically lower than when 22 percent of the voters went to the polls for the special election in the fall. That election had only one race for the Board of Selectmen but drew a lot of interest. In that election, Sayers narrowly defeated Barbara Hassan.
 
For that race campaign signs were displayed throughout the town and debates and campaigns were held leading up to the race. On Tuesday, only Sayers could be seen campaigning as he stood at town hall for the duration of the eight hours of polling.
