Republican elected selectman in Dracut

Cathy Richardson, the daughter of Mass GOP state committeewoman Sheila Richardson, has been elected to the Dracut Board of Selectmen.  The Lowell Sun has the story.

Voters booted out longtime Selectman James O’Loughlin and helped newcomer Cathy Richardson sail to an overwhelming victory in yesterday’s town elections.

Richardson topped the ticket in six of the town’s 10 precincts with 2,079 votes.

“I’m very surprised and grateful to the citizens of Dracut. I can’t believe it,” said Richardson, who was giddy with excitement at her Election Night party at Dracut House of Pizza. “I want to tell the people of Dracut I’m honored to serve them and I want them to know I will work very hard for them.”

Yesterday’s election pitted challengers Richardson, Brian Bond and Pete Wilde against incumbents George Malliaros and O’Loughlin for two three-year seats on the board.
