Dismissed Ashland police chief Scott C. Rohmer failed in his bid to win a seat on the Board of Selectmen, according to unofficial results posted by the town.

Incumbent selectman Joseph J. Magnani and school board member Mark D. Juitt were elected Tuesday to the Board of Selectmen with 1,609 votes and 1,292 votes, respectively. Rohmer trailed with 1,156 votes.

Rohmer is on administrative leave from his job as chief, and his contract that expires in June won't be renewed by the new town manager, Anthony Schiavi. Rohmer decided to run for one of the two open seats on the board.

In the other contested races, Gina A. Donovan and Mark Bennet Larson won seats on the school board with 1,523 and 1,028 votes, respectively. Adam J. Elbirt came up short with 909 votes. The three were running for two seats.

Michael J. Mokey defeated Vanessa Allison Charles for a seat on the planning board, 1,094-808.

Total voter turnout was 24 percent.
