Robert P. Mascali walked into his Teaticket living room on Tuesday night, May 16, to deliver the news to gathered friends, family and supporters: the seat on the select board he had campaigned for since February was now his. The crowded cheered and applauded as Mr. Mascali raised his arm in triumph.

The unofficial results of the election show Mr. Mascali garnered 34 percent of the vote. Current select board chairwoman Nancy R. Taylor kept her seat with 39 percent of the vote. And Robert B. Dugan—a third contender for the two open seats—lost with 27 percent of the vote.
