ST. ALBANS — In St. Albans Town, current selectboard chair Bruce Cheeseman defeated vice chair Sam Smith for a two-year seat on the board. Former chair Stan Dukas will return to the board in Smith’s two year seat.
Curry Galloway will be St. Albans City’s new clerk and treasurer, replacing Sue Krupp who is retiring.
Tim Smith, having survived a surprise write-in challenge from his son, Duffy, will become the city’s mayor, just as voters approved a $2.5 million bond to build a new 25,000 square foot commercial building on the corner of Congress and Main and 40 units of housing on Maiden Lane.
