Thomaston — In the only contested municipal race in Thomaston, Beverly St. Clair was elected to the Board of Selectmen, beating incumbent Greg Hamlin by a vote of 342 to 170.

Incumbent Peter Lammert maintained his seat on the Board of Assessors with 452 votes.

As there were no nomination papers turned in for the two open seats on the Regional School Unit 13 Board of Directors, several write-in nominees were added, including Amy Witham Beers with 16; Hamlin, 4; St. Clair, 3; Dwight Henry, 3; and Ron Gamage, 2.

It is yet to be confirmed if any of the nominees will accept the position.

Residents of Thomaston will consider a proposed $3,443,270.24 budget, a 5.64 percent increase, at town meeting tonight, June 13, at 7 p.m. at the American Legion Hall.
