Two Kingston Selectmen, Chairman Josh Warren and Selectman Elaine Fiore, were ousted in a June 27th recall. Warren lost the recall 1570-1154 and then lost the replacement race to Kimberly Emberg (1542-1098) and Fiore lost the recall 1569-1178, and then lost in the replacement election to Dick Arruda (1546-1113). Turnout was about 28%.
The recall effort is over claims of a verbal aggressive attack on Selectman Jessica Kramer by a town employee and Warren's refusal to put the employee on leave. There was a counter claim that petitioners are upset about taxes and are looking for them to fire the Town Administrator.
The recall was combined with the Annual Town Election.
