Dorchester Vote on Spending Set for Saturday

Dorchester — Maria Weick won the sole open Selectboard seat in one of several uncontested races for town offices on Tuesday.

Weick will join the three-person board, replacing the outgoing Vice Chairman Michael Mock. While Weick was the only name on the ballot for the three-year Selectboard seat and received 118 votes, Trevor Gove still earned 48 votes as a write-in.

Elsewhere, Bethann Weick retained her Planning Board seat and spot on the Cemetery Committee; Martha Walker will continue on as auditor; Joshua Trought as moderator and Justine Majeski will remain trustee of public funds.

There were numerous write-in races, including Darlene Oaks, who was elected tax collector and town clerk, Cheryl Legg, who was elected town treasurer, and Shawn Russell, who was elected to supervisor of the checklist.

Dorchester will hold a floor meeting at 10 a.m. on Saturday for voters to weigh in on this year’s spending articles.

If the more than $82,000 worth of articles are passed, as well as the $437,602 budget, it would result in a 14.4 percent increase in spending over last year.

However, all the additional spending would be offset by anticipated revenue and a surplus.
