Bellingham veteran loses his seat

Posted by Martin Finucane May 2, 2007 03:16 PM


Longtime incumbent selectman Jerald Mayhew lost to challenger Dawn Marie Davies by just 20 votes in Bellingham's municipal election yesterday.

Just over 13 percent of Bellingham's registered voters turned out to decide four contested races.

Incumbent School Committee chairman Ronald Martel was returned to his post by voters, along with Francis E. Cartier, who prevailed over three other challengers.

Stephen Bartha and Patricia Buckley won the two available seats on the Planning Board.

Richard Martinelli, William A. Spear Jr., and Paul J. Kearns were elected to constable, beating two other candidates.
