Stockbridge incumbents retain seats following election

“There was a steady flow of voters all day,” Town Clerk Terri Lemolini told The Berkshire Edge in an email. “It is one of the bigger turnouts we have seen in a while.”

Stockbridge — Election day was a good day for Stockbridge incumbents, with Ernest J. “Chuckie” Cardillo Jr. (323 votes) retaining his seat on the Select Board, fending off challenger Lisa Sauer (204 votes), while longtime Town Moderator Gary D. Johnston (374 votes) won handily over candidate Carole Dianne Owens (192 votes).

The two town questions—whether the town clerk and tree warden should be appointed positions instead of the current elected seats—passed easily, with 327 votes for the town clerk appointment to 214 “no” votes, and 403 votes for the tree warden appointment to 138 “no” votes.

Unopposed candidates included Gary M. Pitney (468 votes) for Board of Assessors, Charles H. Kenny (460 votes) for Board of Health, D. Anne Rabinowitz (435 votes) for Housing Authority, Katie Szwyd (453 votes) for Parks & Recreation Commissioner, W. Eric Egan (429 votes) for Planning Board, and Donald C. Schneyer (490 votes) for Sewer & Water Commissioner. The Housing Authority and Planning Board positions are five-year terms, with all remaining positions held for three-year terms.

According to Town Clerk Terri Lemolini, 575 out of 1,696 registered voters, or about 33 percent, cast their ballots in the election. “There was a steady flow of voters all day,” Lemolini told The Berkshire Edge in an email. “It is one of the bigger turnouts we have seen in a while.”
