A large number of "under votes" were cast for council seats, where ballots had fewer or none of the allowed votes for the race.

The two most recently appointed councilmen are up for election, as well as Keith Wright, the town's highway superintendent, and Kenneth Mackey, a town judge.

A question was asked, and Bichtemen felt he wasn’t well informed to answer.

Since then, he has spent a lot of time making sure he is well versed on a wide variety of town issues, he said.
