Michael Santoro, Walter Vail, and Brian Packish, all current or former businessmen with years of experience in town hall, are vying for two seats on the Oak Bluffs board of selectmen at next week's town election.
Ballots are shaping up in for spring town elections on the Vineyard, with contested selectmen’s races in West Tisbury and Oak Bluffs. Edgartown voters will see a two-way contest for the planning board.
The first presidential election reported in the columns of the Vineyard Gazette was that of 1848, two years after the founding of the Gazette by Edgar Marchant. The election took place on Tuesday. On Friday the Gazette printed the result in Dukes County, which was as follows, the figures being those for Taylor, Cass and Van Buren in that order: Edgartown 157, 46, 35; Tisbury 99, 38, 42; Chilmark 34, 49, 4; total 290, 133, 81.
The result of Tuesday’s voting is no longer in doubt. The Republicans have carried the country and General Benjamin Harrison of Indiana has been chosen as the next president of the United States.
