By John Toole

---- — WINDHAM — Selectmen’s Chairman Bruce Breton will lead the Republican town committee.

Breton was elected this week. He succeeds Travis Blais.

“I am both humbled and honored to receive the overwhelming support for so many staunch conservatives,” Breton said. “Together, we will work to elect conservative candidates.”

Others elected to town party offices include former state Rep. David Bates, as vice chairman; Planning Board member Pam Skinner, as secretary; and Eileen Mashimo, as treasurer. Mashimo is one of the town’s supervisors of the checklist.

Skinner is a member of the town Planning Board.

“I look forward to continuing to serve the people of Windham in this new capacity and to working with the committee to advance conservative principles in our town,” Bates said.
