Warren — Warren residents elected Jan MacDonald in the only contested race for an open municipal position June 12 at the polls.

MacDonald received 374 votes to incumbent Carole Courtenay's 238 for the victory.

Incumbent James Kinney retains his seat on the board for another three years.

Other municipal positions filled include Saralee Andrews for RSU 40 Board of Directors; Clayton Winchenbach and Edward Courtenay for three-year terms on the Warren Sanitary District, and Mark Waltz and Daniel Davey to serve out the remainder of their terms on the WSD board. All are incumbents.

There were write-in candidates for the two other vacant seats that remain available on the RSU 40 Board of Directors, one expiring in 2019 and the other in 2020. Morgan Hynd accepted the nomination for the seat that expires in 2020. The other remains open.

Other town business will be dealt with at town meeting, 7 p.m. June 19 at the Warren Community School.

The proposed $1,215,705 budget shows a $90,079 decrease from last year.

Expenditures in the budget equal $2,370,777 and will be offset by revenues of $1,155,072, with the amount of $1,215,705 to be raised from taxes.
