It was a raucous scene at Phil’s Restaurant in Wakefield, just across the bridge from Wakefield Elementary School, as the four candidates for School Committee most dedicated to seeing it remain open won election to the South Kingstown School Committee.
Democrats Lisa A. Hildebrand and Gregory B. Blasbalg both won four-year terms on the School Committee Tuesday night, with each candidate winning decisively by thousands of votes.
With all the votes accounted for, newcomer candidate Jesse Pugh finished as the lead vote-getter in the race for Narragansett Town Council. Pugh pulled away with 3,739 votes, or 16.3 percent of the overall turnout.
With every incumbent candidate being re-elected, members of the Narragansett School Committee say they plan to continue their efforts to improve student safety and mental health. Residents will see Tammy McNeiece, Diane Nobles, Rebecca Durkin, Frank White, and Justin Skenyon all return during next week’s School Committee meeting.
The North Kingstown Town Council will have three new members in December after Democrats Gregory A. Mancini and Stacey L. Elliott, and Republican Mary K. Brimer all earned a seat during Tuesday’s election.
As the election night rolled on, independent candidate Liz Gledhill believed she had won re-election to the South Kingstown Town Council, and had been celebrating with the “Final Four” candidates for the School Committee at Phil’s Restaurant.
For the first time in the history of their football programs, North Kingstown and South Kingstown will meet in the postseason.
