Fire Station Voted Down, McGuigan Loses Her Planning Board Seat
The difference was 403 votes.
In an election with very low turnout, Chelmsford voters today voted down a $9.1 million fire station.
With 2,420 voting against it and only 2,017 voting for the new station, Town Manager Paul Cohen will now have to go back to the drawing board with the Permanent Building Committee.
In other candidate news, Ann McGuigan, an incumbent, was knocked out of her bid for the Planning Board. Michael Raisbeck and Richard McClure won two seats on the Planning Board.
The race for the Planning Board was the only contested race.
In uncontested race news, Jim Lane won a seat on the Board of Selectmen and Al Thomas and Michael Rigney both won seats on the School Committee.
