Mullane keeps his job in North Stonington, wins 15th term


NORTH STONINGTON — Republican incumbent Nicholas Mullane II will continue to serve as first selectman, winning his 15th term tonight.

Mullane’s experience leading the town once again helped him beat back unendorsed Republican challenger Robert Testa by a vote of 838 to 702. The two have faced off for the first selectman seat in two previous elections.

While Mullane was criticized by his opponent and some town residents for slow progress on town infrastructure repairs like the Boom Bridge Road project, he pledged during his campaign to continue working on such repairs. He has also emphasized the need for a school building project and increased affordable and senior housing.

In the selectman’s race, Republican Brett Mastroianni emerged as the top vote-earner, with 701 votes, just one vote less than Testa.

A recount is planned. The candidate with the highest number of votes will join the Board of Selectmen.

The three-member Board of Selectmen for the next two years will include Mullane and Democratic incumbent Mark Donahue, who was guaranteed a spot on the board based on state requirements that all three board members cannot be from the same political party. Either Testa or Mastroianni will take the third spot, depending on the outcome of the recount.

In the Board of Education race, voters gave 820 votes to Robert Carlson and 758 votes to Christine Wagner, the two Republican candidates.

Democratic candidates David Maxwell McCord and Julia Buzzee trailed with 547 and 392 votes, respectively. Crystal Dame ran as an unendorsed Democrat, winning 260 votes.

Republican Alexander Karpinski ran unopposed for a vacancy on the school board.

In the treasurer’s race, incumbent Republican Robin Roohr was reelected with 902 votes to Democratic challenger Mustapha Ratib’s 557.
