Incumbents had a clean sweep of open seats on the Scotts Mills City Council during the Nov. 8 general election, according to initial election results.

As of 10 p.m. Nov. 8, city councilors Monika Martin, Casey Dean and Robin Fournier secured new terms with 91, 86 and 71 votes, respectively.

Challenger Shawna Kelly rounded out the election with 61 votes, while an additional 13 candidates were submitted as write-ins.

Fournier, who is also city manager, said these tallies may technically be close, but for a city as small as Scotts Mills the outcome is unlikely to change when the election is certified Dec. 6. She said most voters in Scotts Mills submit ballots early, so initial election counts often reflect the final outcome.

In regard to her re-election, Fournier said she was grateful voters granted her another term.

“I’m honored that [voters] have trusted me to represent them for another four years on the City Council, and I will continue to look out for their best interests just like I have until now,”she said.

Dean also said he was grateful for voter support and viewed his re-election as a directive to continue advocating for residents.

“It certainly feels like a mandate, and I look forward to continuing to serve the interests of our citizens,” he said.

Kelly, a political newcomer, congratulated her opponents on their re-elections, and also thanked everyone who participated in the election, if they supported her or a different candidate.

I will continue to be an active member of the community and look forward to meeting more of my neighbors and participating in town events,” she said.
Martin could not be reached for comment prior to deadline.
