Sandwich Voters Elect New Selectman, Approve Tax Override

SANDWICH – Sandwich voters approved a tax override and elected a new member to the board of selectmen in Thursday’s election.

In the race for selectmen, Shane Hoctor defeated Charles Holden 942-to-861 for the seat left vacant by the death of Peter Beauchemin last December.

For three seats on the school committee, Angela Dalpe-Healy, Donald Digiacomo and Sheri Lynn Erikson were elected.

Gillian Norton’s name appeared on the ballot, but she recently dropped out of the race after the deadline to have her name removed from the ballot.

Sandwich voters also approved a Proposition 2 ½ override that will provide $6 million for road and infrastructure repairs and $2 million for repairs to the Boardwalk.

The iconic structure was heavily damaged during the nor’easters earlier this year.

There were uncontested races for board of assessors, board of health, constable, moderator, planning board and housing authority.

Turnout was just under 13 percent.
