Natick ballot set after prelimary vote

Posted by John C. Drake February 28, 2007 11:59 AM


Judi Kuhn, an administrative assistant in the Natick Town Clerk's office, received a majority of votes in the preliminary election yesterday to replace retiring clerk Jane Hladick. She'll face Diane Packer, who received the second-most votes, in the March 27 town election.

About 2,000 people, less than ten percent of registered voters, cast ballots in the preliminary election, which only featured the four-way race for clerk. Jeffrey M. Phillips, who received 15 percent of the vote, and David Ordway, who got 9 percent, were eliminated.

Here's the final tally:
Judi Kuhn: 55 percent (1,102 votes)
Diane Packer: 21 percent (420 votes)
Jeffrey M. Phillips: 15 percent (292 votes)
David Ordway: 9 percent (172 votes)

In addition to the clerk's race, the town election will have two other competitive races. Six candidates are vying for three seats on the School Committee, and two people are running for town moderator.
