OAKLAND — Incumbents fared well Tuesday as voters opted to return two to the Town Council and one to the regional school board.

Councilors Dana Wrigley and Don Borman led a field of four with 1,104 votes and 863 votes, respectively. Nathan Bernier earned 720 votes and fellow challenger Gerald Harrington received 494.

Oakland residents backed Laura Tracy for the Regional School Unit 18 school board, giving her 895 votes. Matthew Borman earned 574 votes and Glenn Adams received 264.

Matthew Borman is the son of Don Borman.

All election results are unofficial until confirmed.

The RSU 18 district includes the towns of Belgrade, China, Oakland, Rome and Sidney. Tracy is the chairwoman of the school board.

She said recently that having a “high functioning and effective school system that focuses on academic excellence is one of the best things we can do for our communities, and most importantly for our families and students, as this can set them up for success for the rest of their lives. Our towns are able to attract families that want to send their students to the best schools.”

Tracy, a graduate of Messalonskee High School and director of primary care at MaineGeneral Medical Center, has served on the school board for several years.

Incumbent Angela Jurdak was reelected to the town’s budget and advisory committee and Daniel Eccher also was elected to that panel. The committee chairman, Michael Rossignol, did not seek another term, nor did Shawn O’Leary.
