Nov. 2 Election Returns
The council voted unanimously to approve the returns and declared the Nov. 2 general and special election results. Elizabeth Cunha was re-elected to Place 4 on the council, while Dennis Maloney and David Levine will runoff for Place 6.
The two city charter amendments about city council ethics passed with almost 90 percent of the vote. An amendment that would have moved city elections to odd-numbered years was rejected by about 64 percent of the voters.
Cunha Takes Oath of Office
Municipal Court Judge Ed Spillane administered the oath of office to Elizabeth Cunha, who was re-elected as the Place 4 council member after receiving 56.3 percent of the vote.
Place 6 Runoff Election Set for Dec. 14
The council voted unanimously to declare a runoff election on Dec. 14 for city council Place 6 between David Levine and incumbent Dennis Maloney. They were the top vote-getters in a three-way race on Election Day, but neither topped the required 50 percent. Maloney will continue to serve until the seat is filled.
Disaster Declaration Renewal
The council voted unanimously to extend the mayor’s COVID-19 disaster declaration to allow the city to continue receiving emergency pandemic-related funding.
Mayor Karl Mooney adjourned the meeting. The council meets again on Monday, Nov. 22.
