ALBURGH -- Alburgh voters were in a positive mood on Town Meeting Day as they approved all ballot items, including the town and school district budgets.
Voters also re-elected School Board members Michael Savage and Mallory Ovitt and agreed 404-200 that the proposed Alburgh Clubhouse, a private non-profit for childcare and pre-school programs, could construct a building next to the town elementary school.
Shawn Creller defeated Ryan Savage 280-243 for a two-year seat on the Selectboard. Matthew LeFleur finished third with 45 votes.
Selectboard member Russell Duchaine, who was appointed to fill a vacancy, easily won a two-year term by outdistancing two other candidates.
Nicholas Palmer was uncontested for a one-year seat on the Selectboard.
Constable Ariel Brace lost her bid for re-election to Jarid Creller. He prevailed 254-216 while George McGrath finished a distant third with 97.
Longtime Delinquent Tax Collector Terry Tatro also won re-election for one year by easily outrunning Shawn Creller 359-230.
Shawn Creller did beat Corrine Russin 327-230 for the one-year post of town grand juror -- a mostly honorary position.
