TYRINGHAM — Select Board Chairman James Consolati fended off a challenge to retain his seat in Monday's annual town election.

Consolati defeated Mark Curtin, the town's Planning Board chairman, 106-36 to win another three-year term.

More than 40 percent of registered voters — 142 people — voted in the election.There were no other contested races on the ballot.

No names appeared on the ballot for an open position on the Parks Commission, but 14 residents cast votes for 10 write-in candidates. Still, the five-year position remains open, according to a notice posted on Tyringham's website by the town clerk.

Other town officials elected Monday are: moderator (one year), Charles Slater; assessor (three years), William Cosel; Cemetery Commission (three years), Richard Loring; library trustee (three years), Catherine Mardula; Planning Board (five years), Rebecca Honig; School Committee (three years), Maureen Lenti.
