Springfield, N.H., Selectboard Chairman Turns Back Challengers

Springfield, N.H. — Selectboard Chairman Don Hill, a six-year incumbent, easily turned back two challengers on Tuesday.

Hill took 174 votes to 57 for William Huntoon and 39 for John Trachy.

Huntoon has served on the Budget Committee and previously ran for Selectboard. Trachy said he wants to improve use of the town’s website and help build a greater sense of community in town.

When Town Meeting resumes Saturday at 9:30 a.m., voters will decide whether to borrow $99,000 for a new highway truck. The expected cost is $151,000, and the warning article calls for $52,000 to be taken from the town’s unreserved fund balance.

The town’s spending budget is expected to remain flat, at just over $1.2 million.
