Share Button

Paul Healey has won a seat on the Hingham Board of Selectmen, defeating Carlton “Al” Chambers, Sr., 3,562-847 on Tuesday night.

The two were vying for the seat after Hingham selectman Laura Burns announced earlier this year that she will be stepping down from the board at the end of her current term.

Three candidates won seats on the School Committee in a four-way race. Incumbent Elizabeth Reed O’Reilly was the top voter-getter with 3,130, followed by incumbents Andrew Shafter with 2,754, and Raymond Estes with 2,379. Benjamin Burnham did not make the committee with 2,068 votes.

Incumbent Sarah Corey held onto her seat on the Planning Board with 2,322. Challenger Edward Colbert received 1,921 votes.

In the two-way race for a seat on the Sewer Commission, incumbent Edmund Demko kept his seat with 2,735 votes to challenger Thomas Patch’s 1,504.
