The Town of Natick has released unofficial results for Tuesday’s election, and in a good race, Bruce Evans (38%) and Kathryn Coughlin (35%) earned the two open seats. Cody Jacobs got 27% of the vote.
Update: We’ve replaced the unofficial results with the official ones (released 4/1/22) below.
In the five-candidate race for three open School Committee seats, incumbents Julie McDonough and Cathi Collins retained their spots, while newcomer Elise Gorseth won the third seat. While new to School Committee, Gorseth is a Town Meeting member, and until recently was the co-chair of the Natick Special Education Parent Advisory Committee.
Those were the only two contested town-wide races.
Among the other interesting results: In the battle of the Ordways for two uncontested spots on Recreation and Parks Commission, Jessica Ordway scored five more votes than David Ordway, per the unofficial results released by the town on Tuesday night.
The sole ballot question, involving a Charter Amendment proposed at Fall Town Meeting regarding Housing Authority elected officials, was easily approved.
Less than 14% of registered voters cast ballots in the election, according to the unofficial results. That would be similar to last year’s underwhelming number.
The full results, including for Town Meeting members, are embedded below.
Thanks to all who ran for office and for all who voted.
