Challenger Kathleen M. Conlon unseated Robert C. Sweeney in the race for Milton selectmen while most other races went to incumbents.

Conlon, who was not available for comment Tuesday night, received 4,086 votes to Sweeney’s 2,846. Conlon ran touting her experience as an attorney and with the promise she would focus more on long-range budget planning.

In another contested race, incumbent Alexander Whiteside held onto his seat on the Planning Board with 3,439 votes compared to the 2,290 of his challenger, Todd John Hamilton.

Hamilton had accused Whiteside of abusing his position as a planning board member to block development in his own neighborhood. Whiteside had said he was simply offering his opinion on a way in which a development could move forward without litigation.

The seat on the Housing Authority went to Catherine A. Shea, with 3,635 votes compared to opponent Christopher Huban, who received 1,818 votes.

Rebecca M. Padera will continue to serve on the School Committee – she received the most number of votes in the field of three candidates with 3,812 votes. Michael F. Zullas will join her, having received 3,033 votes. Robert G. Hiss was defeated with only 2,580 votes.

Robert A. Mason won a seat on the Trustees of the Cemetery, besting James F. Stroud.

The four constables will be Tamara Berton, Stephen Freeman, Justin J. O’Shea, and Edward J. Villard.

Of Milton’s 18,743 voters, 7,232 cast ballots in the local races, for about a 38.6 percent turnout.

In the state US Senate primary, Milton selected Stephen Lynch in the Democratic primary and Gabriel E. Gomez in the Republican.
