Jeffrey Adams will fill Tom Saviello’s selectman’s seat following election results Tuesday night.

Despite losing power at the Wilton Town Office, counters plodded on with both the selectman vote and the Regional School Unit 9 budget vote. The $32.25 million RSU 9 budget failed in town, 260-286, as well as in the district, which has 10 towns.

Adams won the selectman’s seat with 239 votes, beating Irving Faunce, who trailed with 147; Gerald Whitney, with 108; and Joseph Kinsey, with 35 votes.

Adams, Kinsey and Whitney spent much of the day in front of the Town Office, shaking hands in the drizzly weather and getting a little face time before people cast their vote.
