FREEPORT — Incumbent Democratic Rep. David C. Webster will keep the House District 106 seat for a fourth term.

He was challenged by Republican William Greene in the race to represent Freeport and a portion of Pownal.

In Freeport, Webster received 64 percent of the vote. The unofficial count was 2,589 to 1,443. In Pownal, Webster won by 48 votes, 183-135.

Webster, 62, is married and lives on Lavers Pond Road. He has represented the district for the past six years and has served on the Health and Human Resources Committee and the Appropriation and Financial Affairs Committee. He received his master’s degree in education organization and management from Antioch University, and is a graduate of the Lambda Class of Maine Institute for Civic Leadership.

“I am pleased to be able to represent Freeport and Pownal once again,” he said Tuesday night. “I am committed to working with others at the state level to find solutions and move Maine forward.”

He said he would not do anything differently in the Legislature in the next two years.

“I think what we have accomplished has proved successful,” he said. “We have worked together, created bipartisan budgets and clearly stated our values.”

In the Senate District 10 race, Democratic incumbent Sen. Stan Gerzofsky defeated Republican challenger Scott Thomas for the seat representing Freeport, Brunswick, Harpswell and Pownal, 10,125 to 6,373.

While Pownal voters backed Thomas 463-384, voters in Freeport, Brunswick and Harpswell carried Gerzofsky. He won 2,179 to 1,830 in Freeport, 9,949 to 2,902 in Brunswick and 1,632 to 1,178 in Harpswell.

Gerzofsky has served one term in the state Senate and four terms in the state House.
