WILLIAMSTOWN — Voters on Tuesday chose David Moresi for an 18-month term on the Prudential Committee and Richard Reynolds for a 30-month term.

Only 180 ballots were cast out of about 4,800 registered voters in town, Town Clerk Mary Kennedy said, or barely 4 percent.

Moresi received 137 votes to the 39 received by his opponent, Gerald Smith. Reynolds notched 114 votes to the 64 votes of his opponent, Bruce MacDonald.

Eventually, the two new seats on the expanding committee will be three-year terms, like the current three spots on the committee, which oversees the Williamstown Fire Department

Moresi and Reynolds join incumbents John Notsley, Ed McGowan and Ed Briggs on the Prudential Committee. One of the big near-term challenges for the town's Fire Department is a pending project to build a new station on a Main Street parcel district voters agreed to purchase in 2017.

Moresi is the principal of Moresi & Associates, a North Adams-based real estate development firm; among its highest profile projects are 296 Main St. in Williamstown, a site once eyed by the town as a potential public safety building location. Reynolds, is a program manager at Hewlett Packard with a track record as a volunteer firefighter as an undergraduate at Rutgers University.
