Selectmen incumbents Allan D. Howard and Paul A. Bishop were reelected 0n Monday, thwarting a challenge by Kevin J. Pentowski, who has been active in opposing downtown affordable housing proposals. Bishop received 2,031 votes, 37.46 percent of the vote, with Howard getting 2,011 votes, 37.09 percent, and Pentowski getting 1,367 votes or 25.21 percent. Pentowski did win election as a Town Meeting member in District 7. He was the top vote-getter with 198 votes, 9 percent of the vote. Pentowski said in an interview Tuesday that “it wasn’t in the cards” for him to win a Board of Selectmen’s seat, but that he will continue to fight to keep the 40B and 40R housing proposals out of town. “I don’t plan on skipping a beat,” he said.
