I for one am very happy with the results. It seems the town (or a small percentage from what turnout shows) is fed up with the same old same old and voted in some fresh blood. I hope Mr. O'Regan stand up tall against some of the garbage that the Selectman have thrown at us. I am also happy to see Ms. Walsh re elected as she has always seemed to stand on what she believed was best for the town not what the other Slectmen wanted her to. Also, welcome back to Mr. Ural, I hope you can help sort out the mess the Supt of School has made of our school system.
