There were a lot of sign waving supporters on Somerville street corners on election day. Wondering who won the Board of Alderman and school committee races? Here are the preliminary Somerville election results for the municipal election on November 8, 2011.
Somerville Election Results
Somerville publishes the unofficial election results. Races aren’t final until the absentee, overseas and other provisional ballots are counted. The posted unofficial results are based on the 9,071 votes cast and counted at the polls.
Since most seats were not contested, however, there’s not a heck of a lot to report. Mayor Curtatone and all seven members of the School Committee ran unopposed and were reelected.
Somerville Board of Alderman Election Results
The Board of Alderman races resulted in just one new face among the eleven members.
All four of the Board of Aldermen members with at-large seats won re-election: John Connelly, Dennis Sullivan, William White and Bruce Desmond. William Roche (Ward 1), Maryann Heuston (Ward 2), Sean O’Donovan (Ward 5) andRebekah Gerwitz (Ward 6) ran unopposed and were re-elected.
Thomas Taylor was re-elected to represent Ward 3, beating Stephen Delani.
In a bit of a squeaker in Ward 7, Robert Trane was re-elected, beating challenger Katjana Ballantyne by 40 votes, 1068 to 1028, according to the unofficial tally.
In Ward 3, Alderman Walter Pero did not run for re-election. The unofficial tally shows Tony Lafuente beating Christine Barber in that race by 857 t o 623.
