Carver: Recount to take place in selectmen’s race

It was a tight selectmen’s race in Carver on Saturday, so tight, there’s going to be a recount.

Jack Franey picked up just one vote more than William Sinclair, 857 to 856. 

Incumbent selectman Mike O’Donnell retains his seat.

Debbera Silva won the race for Water Commissioner, beating out Buzz Artiano and Roderick Forrester.

Carver residents voted “no” on the school building project’s non-binding referendum question which takes the district out of the capital pipeline for money from the Massachusetts School Building Authority.

Here are the official race results, pre-recount:


Mike O’Donnell–1,176

Jack Franey–857

Will Sinclair–856


Debbera Silva–645

Roderick Forrester–421

Buzz Artiano–590
