Newcomers Beshara, Sweet, Deeb win seats

Fawcett, Kumm, Vogler re-elected


“The biggest issue we face is money. The state doesn’t fund us and the town gives us the minimum,” he said. “But we do a very good job with what we get.”

Many of the members praised the direction of the high school project, which is on schedule to be finished next summer and on budget. They said the main thing the School Committee can do is keep it on track.

Denise Giammasi, who voted at Tenney Grammar School, said she chose three candidates – Fawcett, Beshara and Thomas Grondine – who had teaching or administrative experience. “I picked the people who were in schools and would know what the schools need,” she said.

Grondine and Jana DiNatale, an assistant district attorney, were not elected to the committee.

Former member Deborah Quinn also resigned from the committee when she moved out of town recently. Members Evan Chaisson and Barbara Grondine were prohibited from seeking another term.

In 2011, four new members – Kumm, Fawcett, Graziano and Quinn – swept onto the committee, and Vogler was ousted.

The new committee will take office in January.
