A significant number of so-called “fiscal conservatives” were elected to Walpole Town Meeting from at least six of the eight precincts – erasing many of the gains made by supporters of last year’s general override in the 2012 municipal election.

In Precinct 1, Eric Hurwitz won an open one-year term unopposed. Walpole Republican Town Committee Chair Paul McDonough won a three-year seat, along with Bob Gay. Walpole Ponds Committee Chairman Daniel Ryan, also a town employee, won a three-year term. Incumbent Eric Shelton Westgate came up short in his bid for re-election.

In Precinct 2, it remains unclear whether renowned Boston University professor Andrew J. Bacevich, an author of several books and a critic of the Iraq War, won a write-in seat for Town Meeting Representative. Official results for that write-in race will be available Monday.

In Precinct 3, former Selectman candidate Russell Jones, a local business owner and brother of former Selectman Kenneth Jones, won a seat in Town Meeting along with Ann M. Ragosta. Robert O’Leary, the brother of RTM John O’Leary, and incumbent P. Gregg Teixeira came up short.

In Precinct 4, former Selectman candidate Christopher Donovan won a RTM seat. It is unknown at this time in Precinct 4 whether former Town Meeting Representatives Mike Duffy and Ann Marie Kannally also won seats with write-in votes.

In Precinct 5, Council on Aging treasurer Jim Pellegrine won a seat unopposed. Former Town Meeting Representative John Vaillancourt took a write-in victory in that precinct as well, although the result of that write-in race is still unofficial.

In Precinct 6, fiscal conservative Tina McKay unofficially won a RTM seat with write-in votes.

In Precinct 7, fiscal conservative Al Tedesco won a seat in a hard-fought victory in a competitive race. Tedesco stood out at the poll at Fisher School for much of the day in the hot sun and may have earned sympathy votes as a result.
