Breaking news: Austin Sarat Elected New Library Trustee by Wide Margin

7:25 p.m.
At a joint meeting tonight, the Select Board and Library Trustees elected Austin Sarat the new trustee, to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of Kathy Wang.

Candidates Carl Erikson, Richard Fein, and Austin Sarat made statements and answered the questions of the two boards for nearly an hour and a half.
The universal verdict was that all three candidates were admirably engaged and superbly prepared. Indeed, several participants said that they had rarely seen such knowledgeable candidates for any board office.

When it came to a vote, the final tally, by roll call, was:

Sarat: 8 votes.
Erkison: 1 vote.
