Siblings win selectmen seats on Chebeague Island

CHEBEAGUE ISLAND — Siblings Mark Dyer and Susan Campbell won seats in the town's first contested secret-ballot election for the Board of Selectmen.

Incumbent Dyer and newcomer Campbell won by comfortable margins against challengers Nelson David Stevens and Peter Pellerin. Selectman Mary Holt did not seek re-election.

The ballot also included two seats on the School Board. Incumbent Carol White secured 181 votes in her uncontested bid. More than 150 votes were spread among five write-in candidates.

Suzanne Rugh garnered 75 votes, while the two nearest competitors — Suhail Bisharat and Nancy Hill — earned 46 and 33 votes, respectively.

Voter turnout was strong: 214 out of 338 registered voters attended.
