The unofficial results are in. Congratulations to Marty Healey and Sam Stivers. Both men were elected to join the Board of Selectmen. Each was selected by over half of the voters who weighed in on the Town election.

Only 1,199 Southborough residents (16.5% of registered voters) cast ballots in this year’s election. That’s .02% lower than last year.

Healey was the top vote getter with 706 votes. Stivers, who lost three past runs for the board, came in 2nd this time around. He garnered 637 votes.

Joseph Hubley came in 3rd place with 573 and Steven David, the newcomer to Town politics, finished last with 258 votes.

I want to thank all the candidates that chose to run, particularly those that stood for Selectmen. They offered us a choice and stood for what they believed in. It is no fun to lose, I know, but they took the risk and stood in the arena.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt
