A political newcomer -- the son of a former town counsel -- defeated a former selectman hoping to return to the board in Tuesday’s election. Timothy Dodd, the son of Alan Dodd, won a three-year seat with 998 votes, according the town clerk’s office.
That was nearly 200 votes more than Denzil Drewry, who served on the board for four terms until he was ousted by former School Committee member George Thompson last year. Incumbent Leigh Emery was re-elected to the board for another three years with 1,012 votes.
In the only other contested race, Joanne M. Mallozzi was elected to a one-year seat on the Planning Board with 629 votes, defeating Robert Amey, 436 votes; and Kenneth Ferrera, 378 votes. Of the town’s 11,158 eligible voters, 15 percent showed up at the polls.
