Election Results: Pato Joins Selectmen, Corcoran-Ronchetti to Planning Board
The (unofficial) results are in.
Fewer than 10 percent of Lexington’s registered voters turned out for the annual Town Elections held Monday, March 4.
But every vote counts, and after every vote was counted, Lexington voters elected a new selectman and a new Planning Board member, and re-elected a handful of other officials. A host of Town Meeting members were also elected and re-elected to seats representing the town’s nine precincts.
The only contested race for town office was for Planning Board, where Nancy Corcoran-Ronchetti defeated Richard McDonough by a tally of 1,138 votes to 429.
Running unopposed, Joseph Pato and Deb Mauger were elected to the Board of Selectmen. Pato received 1,251 votes while Mauger, the board’s current chair, was re-elected with 1,429 votes.
Town Moderator Deb Brown was the day’s top vote-getter, earning 1,482 votes and another one-year term. School Committee members Alessandro Allessandrini and Margaret Coppe were re-elected to their board, receiving 1,280 and 1,322 votes respectively.
