Steve O'Leary and Joe Foti Win North Reading Election
Steve O'Leary will remain on the board and Joe Foti is a new selectman.
Incumbent Steve O'Leary and Joe Foti won the election for Board of Selectmen on Tuesday. The unofficial numbers say that O'Leary will remain a member of the board and Foti is a new member.
Water Commission Chairman Joe Foti had 1,222 votes, Steve O'Leary gained 1,165 votes and former School Committee member Maureen Harty-Vacca collected 784 votes.
The selectmen race were the only contested seats on Tuesday.
Election workers said that the polls were slow as there was not as big of a turn out as they had hoped.
The new selectmen will meet with the rest of the board on Thursday night for a re-organization.
