De Terra Wins Board Of Health Election
Incumbant Peter De Terra was victorious in Monday's Board of Health election in Fairhaven. De Terra defeated challenger John Wethington by more than 900 votes.
It was the second election this year for the Board of Health in Fairhaven. Wethington was declared the winner on April 1st, but a recount showed DeTerra was the winner by two votes. Wethington challenged the outcome in court, and that led to Monday's "redo" election.
De Terra told reporters afterward, he's ready to work with anyone in town on issues regarding the wind turbines, or anything else.
Wethington told WBSM News, he was probably done with politics. He was pleased that so many people came out to vote, but added they just didn't vote for him.
