Westborough – After a three month delay, the town of Westborough finally held its annual Town Election on June 13. The election had been scheduled for March 17 but was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Concerns about the pandemic as well as no contested races no doubt contributed to the low turnout. Just over four percent of the town’s eligible voters (522 out of 12,628) participated. There were 396 early and absentee ballots and 126 in person voters.

Re-elected were Selectman Ian Johnson; Town Moderator John Arnold; Town Clerk Wendy Mickel; School Committee member Lisa Edinerg; Assabet Valley Regional Vocational District School Committee member Paul L. George; Westborough Housing Authority member Joan Pavolis; and Trustees of the Public Library Patricia Fontes, William Linnane and Dorothy Mello

Raghu Nandan was also elected to the School Committee and Timothy Koehler was elected to the Planning Board.
