On the local ballot, there was one contested race and one question.  For Second Constable, incumbent Mark Truax (295 votes) prevailed over challenger Matthew Collins (203 votes).  All other local races were uncontested, and there were no serious write-in campaigns, so all the other candidates on the ballot were elected.  The question about whether to eliminate the office of auditor passed with 221 YES and 151 NO.
