GOULDSBORO — Selectmen will have a new face at the table when the board convenes at its next regular meeting at 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 21.

In Tuesday’s municipal election, Cheryl Robinson garnered a total of 203 votes in a contested race for a three-year seat being vacated by Roger Bowen. Bowen opted not to seek re-election following his second term as selectman.

Robinson is a former registrar of voters and lives on the West Bay Road in Gouldsboro.

Winning his seat with 244 votes, incumbent Bill Thayer was re-elected. Thayer, who has served as a selectman for the past 18 years, and his wife, Cynthia, run Darthia Farm on the West Bay Road.

The other candidates running for the two open seats on the Board of Selectmen were Patrick Perry (169 votes), Roger Dean (131 votes), Deborah Bisson (115 votes) and Robert Youtt (46 votes).

Alison Johnson was also re-elected to the Board of Directors for Regional School Unit 24.

Robinson will be sworn in at the annual Town Meeting on June 13.
