Two vying for seat in Winter Harbor



WINTER HARBOR — The June 11 election includes a contested race for a selectman’s seat in Winter Harbor.

Incumbent Robert Hemenway and challenger Christopher Arnett are both seeking a three-year term.

Arnett, a financial advisor, said he believes it’s time for him to get involved and help other residents.

“I saw the need for someone to step up for leadership,” said Arnett, adding he believes his experience with financial matters would be an asset to the town.

Hemenway said he wants to continue serving residents. He has served on the town Budget Committee and Planning Board in the past and is now a trustee for the Utilities District.

“I want to do what’s right for the town as a whole, not just for the current time but also for the future,” said Hemenway, an administrator at Narraguagus Bay Health Care in Milbridge.

The three-member board also includes Kylie Bragdon, whose term expires in 2020, and Kittridge Rivers, whose term expires in 2021.
