CLARKSBURG -- Voter turnout was low in a largely uncontested town election.
Of the town's 1,077 registered voters, only 165, or 15 percent, cast ballots in the local election, Town Clerk Carol Jammalo said Tuesday night.
"I've looked at the past years' elections, and that's average," she said.
The election's only contested race was for a three-year term on the School Committee. The seat will be filled by Cross Road resident Patricia Prenguber, who received 111 votes. Fellow candidate Kimberly A. Goodell received 49 votes.
The seat was previously held by Prenguber, who was appointed in October 2012 following the resignation of committee member David Woods.
Prenguber, a retired math teacher from Drury High School, told the Transcript on May 15 that she liked the idea of helping the community by serving Clarksburg Elementary School.
"My daughter and son went there, and my grandchildren went there," she said. "I like the faculty. They all get along and strive toward excellence."
Both Prenguber and Goodell said they supported a preschool in Clarksburg, as well as a building project to address the aging elementary school.
A one-year term for moderator will be filled by incumbent Bryan Tanner. Though Tanner did not take out nomination papers, he accepted write-in votes, and received 67.
A three-year term as war memorial trustee, previously held by Allan Goodrich, will be filled by Edward J. Denault, who received 145 votes.
Jammalo said two town residents received write-in votes for a three-year term on the Board of Selectmen: Finance Committee member Mark Denault received 57 votes, she said, and former Selectwoman Debra LaFave received 12.
The seat will be filled by incumbent Carl W. McKinney, who received 79 votes.
Incumbents who were re-elected are: Ernest F. Dix, who received 135 votes for a one-year term as tree warden; Richard J. Bernardi, who received 141 votes for a three-year term as representative to the McCann Technical School; Rose M. Peters, who received 147 votes for a three-year term on the board of library trustees; Gregory J. Vigna, who received 144 votes for a three-year term on the Board of Health; and Jammalo, who received 144 votes for a three-year term as town clerk.
