Harrington; Duval Win Selectmen Seats In Adams
By Andy McKeever On: 08:24PM / Monday May 07, 2012

Top: Longtime School Committee member John Duval was the second highest voter getting in Monday's election and will join the Board of Selectmen.

Right and Bottom: Arthur "Skip" Harrington was re-elected for the board.
ADAMS, Mass. — Incumbent Arthur "Skip" Harrington and longtime School Committee member John Duval won seats on the Board of Selectmen on Monday.

Duval edged out former Selectmen Edward Driscoll by only 61 votes while Harrington ran away with re-election by winning every precinct.

The final totals were Harrington with 851; Duval with 565; Driscoll with 504; Richard Blanchard with 470 and Jeremy Halek with 341. A total of 1,470 of the 5,826 registered voters — about 25 percent — made it to the polls.

The five candidates were vying for two three-year seats. Selectman Jason Hnatonko did not run for re-election.

For Duval, he is looking forward to the change from his last 17 years on the Adams-Cheshire Regional School Committee.

"I look forward to working with the board," Duval said. "I'm just humbled for the support I've received."

The election did not come without worry as he led Driscoll by only 44 votes after four of the five precincts were reported. Harrington, who campaigned heavily on what he believes are successes of the last three years, said he was confident that he would be re-elected.

"I am a little disappointed there wasn't more of a turnout," Harrington said. "I think John [Duval] is a good addition to the board and I am glad to be back for another three years."

The only other contested race was for moderator and Joseph R. Dean Jr. won re-election over Ryan Biros by a margin of 937-477.

The uncontested races were: Haley Meczywor for town clerk; Donna MacDonald for assessor; Patricia Clairmont for Board of Health; James Loughman and Eugene Michalenko for library trustees, James Fassell for Parks Commission; Sandra Moderski for Planning Board; Aaron Dean for the Northern Berkshire Vocational School District and Stephen Vigna for the Adams-Cheshire Regional School Committee.
