Incumbents hold seats in Framingham

Posted by John C. Drake March 28, 2007 11:55 AM


Incumbents Charles Sisitsky and Ginger Esty held off challenger Christine Long to retain their seats on the Framingham Board of Selectmen. Esty and Sisitsky received 2,961 and 2955 votes respectively in yesterday's town-wide election, while Long received 1,869 votes in the race in which the two top vote-getters earned seats.

Adam Blumer will join the Framingham School Committee after finishing first in a three-way race for two seats. Blumer is the son of former Democratic state Rep. Deborah D. Blumer, who died of a heart attack late last year. Incumbent Cesar Monzon also retained his seat, finishing ahead of Steve Hakar, whose petition campaign has forced a Special Town Meeting to deal with funding for special education.

Voter turnout was 14 percent, according to the Town Clerk's office. Full election results are available here.
