Duxbury: Town Election Results

There were three contested races in Duxbury this year and voters came out this weekend to choose their candidates.

The race for moderator was taken by John Tuffy with 1280 votes over William Zachmann with 442 votes.

Tuffy says he wanted the moderator job because it’s an important position: “The position was vacant and I consider the moderators position very important. I was continuing to find a way to serve Duxbury having spent nine years on the fiscal advisory committee and nine years as a selectmen,” said Tuffy.

Duxbury assessor James MacNab was re-elected with 1122 votes over John Britten’s 559 votes.

The race for Duxbury school committee had four candidates eyeing two open seats and Julia Adams and Shannon Moesaa took the spots over James Burke and Coleen Slocum.

Newly elected school committee member Julia Adams says she wants to contribute to the towns great school system: “I ran because I have been interested in serving public education for well over a decade. I think Duxbury has a great school system and it takes great effort to keep it great and make it better. I want to contribute to that effort,” said Adams.

Adams and Moesaa will be sworn in to the Duxbury School Committee at the next meeting.
