Newcomer ousts incumbent in Florida Select Board race


Florida is set to welcome a new member of the Select Board.

Michael Bedini ousted incumbent Krista Bishop for a three-year term on the Select Board. It was the only contested race on the ballot in Monday's annual town election.

Bedini earned 144 votes compared with the 83 votes cast for Bishop.

A one-year term as auditor did not feature any candidates on the ballot, but Doris Lewis earned the most write-in votes. Her five votes beat out two others, who each earned one write-in vote.

In total, 231 of the town's 512 registered voters cast a ballot in the annual town election, a turnout of 45 percent.
