GOULDSBORO — Peter McKenzie and Jackie Weaver were elected to two three-year seats on the Select Board from a field of five candidates at the polls Tuesday.

In the elections, Weaver and McKenzie received 285 and 185 votes, respectively, while 123 voters picked incumbent Wally Moore. Paul Shoemaker and Chris Uruqhart garnered 158 and 140 votes, respectively, according to Gouldsboro Registrar of Voters Anne Laine.

A total of 396 voters turned out to vote at the polls, where Planning Board Chairman Raymond Jones was re-elected to a three-year term and incumbents Jeff Grant and Deborah Bisson were elected to three- and one-year terms in unopposed races.

The annual Town Meeting convenes at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 15, at the Peninsula School gym in Prospect Harbor. Voters will consider a 36-article warrant that includes a draft ambulance ordinance amendment authorizing the Select Board to set Schoodic EMS’s service fees. A Shoreland Zoning Ordinance amendment, requiring contractors to obtain a septic repair permit when repairing septic systems within the Shoreland Zone, also is to be considered.
