Newport Voting Results

dunnOver 700 votes were cast at Newport’s School Re Vote and Town Meeting yesterday. Select Board members Gary Nichols and Jeff Kessler incumbents ran uncontested and each keeps their seat. All Town warrant articles passed except Article 3 that called for adopting the State building code and Article 7 that would have changed Newport’s SB2 Town Meeting back to a Traditional Town meeting.
School warrant Article 6 originally passed, but failed during the revote, which asked to remove approximately $160,000 of surplus in general fund balance for emergencies approved by the Department of Education under RSA 32:11. Article 7 and 8, which original numbers were transposed on the first vote and considered invalid failed on the revote as did Article 9.
