Lancaster Selectmen Jean M. Syria (1,822-694) and Susan E. Smiley (1687-800) were ousted in overwhelming fashion. The issue was their votes to not renew the contract for the town administrator.
The election was odd in that it had a recall vote and then a replacement vote with both Syria and Smiley on the ballot. Former Selectmen Chair Jennifer B. Leone, beat Syria (who's seat is up in six months) 1,928-563. Board of Appeals member Eugene C. Christoph beat Smiley's 1743-765 (that seat is up in 18 months).
