Hanover: Unofficial Town Election Results

We now give you Hanover’s 2017 Town Election for the Board of Selectmen Results.

Emmanuel Dockter and Jocelyn Keegan were elected as Hanover’s two  new selectmen on Saturday night. Dockter received 23% of the town’s vote, and Keegan received 28%; they both beat out Robert O’Rourke, who had been running for re-election, and Chris Carney. O’Rourke and Carney had 21% and 14% of the town’s vote, respectively. 

Keegan shares her goals as a newly appointed Selectman:

And Dockter shares his goals for citizen engagement in the town of Hanover:

Two candidates were appointed this year because back in February, Hanover Board of Selectmen Vice Chair Susan Setterland announced she would not be seeking re-election. Dockter and Keegan trumped the two other candidates, Chris Carney and Robert O’Rouke.

In the other contested races this year, Gabrielle Mahoney won over Lynn White for a Board of Health seat, Kara Nyman claims victory over Gary Young for the Planning Board, and Louis Truscello beat out Chris Falco for the Board of Public Works. Chris Falco also lost to David Delaney for a position on the Board of Assessors.

And finally, the wait is over: the battle between white and light gray to become Hanover Town Hall’s new official color has come to a close.

The color WHITE wins with 66% of the town’s vote, marking the end of a months-long debate that electrified Hanover officials and residents.
