TOWNSEND -- Colin McNabb won an open seat on the Board of Selectmen on Tuesday, according to unofficial results.
McNabb defeated Carolyn Smart, who came in second, and David Funaiole, who came in third. Selectman Nicholas Thalheimer did not run for re-election. The town clerk's office did not release final vote totals before press time.
"Thank you to all my supporters and thank you to the other candidates for running a clean race," McNabb said.
McNabb, the director of home health care and outreach coordinator at McNabb Pharmacy in Townsend, serves on the Capital Planning and Finance Committees. Smart, the billing clerk for the Townsend Water Department, serves on those two committees and is a former assistant to the town administrator. Funaioli served a one-year term as selectman and on other town boards. He is the central office technician at FairPoint Communications in Manchester, N.H.
In the race for three-year positions as Recreation Commissioner, Jennifer Ann McLaughlin won, defeating David Schuttler lost.
The three-year veteran's seat on the Trustees of Soldier's Memorials was won by Walter F. Mann Jr., who bested Edward Snapp.
Townsend saw a light voter turnout during the day for a combined local election and special state primaries.
Five seats on other boards had no candidates. The write-in votes were not available at press time.
