Arlington voters elected Joseph Curro Jr. and Steven Byrne as new members to the Board of Selectmen Tuesday and returned two incumbents to the School Committee.

Curro and Byrne will replace selectwomen Clarissa Rowe and Annie LaCourt, who opted not to run for re-election.

Curro, who has been serving on the School Committee, was the top vote-winner, with 3,417, while Byrne received 2,805 to defeat former School Committee member Joseph Curran’s 2,706 votes, according to the town clerk’s office. Robert Tosi Jr. finished fourth with 2,447 votes and Maria Romano rounded out the field of five candidates with 1,431 votes.

School Committee member Jeffrey Thielman won the most votes in a crowded race for two seats on the committee, receiving 3,426 votes. Fellow incumbent Cindy Starks was also re-elected with 3,284 votes and beat out James Flanagan, who had 2,433 votes; Andrew O’Brien, who received 1,049 votes; Matthew A. Pallett, who had 1,402 votes; and Ian Jackson finished last with 445 votes.

In the race for assessor, incumbent Kevin Feeley defeated challenger Martin Thrope with 3,508 votes to 2,774.

A total of 7,441 of the town’s 28,696 registered voters cast a ballot in the town election.
