Incumbents lost races for selectman and road commissioner in Farmingdale on Friday.

Nancy Frost defeated Doug Ebert, chairman of the Board of Selectmen, 163-119, and William Rogers defeated Road Commissioner Keith Kalloch 177-104. Regional School Unit 2 school board member Jon Lambert was re-elected in an uncontested race.

The Town Meeting will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday in the Hall-Dale Middle School theater.

Frost is a member of Farmingdale’s Road Advisory Committee. In her campaign for selectman, she emphasized her objections to the often-contentious plowing contract and the select board.

She had distributed a double-sided document accusing the selectmen of engaging in unethical behavior by not posting some public meetings and claiming that the board overpaid Ellis Construction for the plowing contract and allowed the contractor to violate the contract

Last year, James Grant defeated then-select board Chairman Rickey McKenna by a 207-77 margin using a similar strategy. He passed out a six-page packet of information to residents that questioned money paid to plowing contractor Ellis Construction for road projects and salt for the roads.

Frost, who works at the nonprofit Women Unlimited, objected to the select board accepting the receipts for liquid calcium chloride Ellis Construction submitted. All but one of the slips were photocopies of a receipt from Paris Farmers Union for 2,500 gallons of the brine. The town attorney approved the receipts after Chris Ellis, an owner of Ellis Construction, said they were meant to show when his company moved the liquid from a tank to the trucks.

Frost called the slips fraudulent, but she said didn’t know what she would do differently if on the board herself.

Ebert said recently that the board is still looking into whether Ellis Construction used enough calcium chloride to pre-wet the sand and salt last winter and what steps the town may take.
