FAIRFIELD — Residents showed up at the polls on Tuesday to elect candidates to positions on the Town Council, School Administrative District 49 school board and the Kennebec Water District.

Incumbent Town Councilor Mark Cooper was reelected for a three-year term after he was appointed to the position in August. The position was left vacant in July after former Councilor Courtney Chandler resigned due to scheduling conflicts.

In an uncontested race for the MSAD 49 school board, Rachel Hachey received 2,920 votes from Fairfield.

The district serves the towns of Albion, Benton, Clinton and Fairfield.

Bruce Williams defeated Caroline Toto-Lawrence for a three-year term on the Kennebec Water District board of trustees by a 1,970-1,007 vote.

“I’m happy about it, (I’m) looking forward to serving,” Williams said during a phone interview Wednesday.
