In typical Westport fashion, the town did its own thing at the polls this year. Going against the regional trend of voting out incumbents, Westporters kept every single incumbent running, with the notable exception of Board of Education Member Kristin LaFleur, who ran for second selectman.
Though a majority of the elected and re-elected candidates were Democrats, the town's biggest vote-getter in a contested race was Board of Finance member Avi Kaner. (The uncontested Board of Education candidates received the most votes Tuesday, with Republican returnee Michael McGovern receiving the most of the entire election. Democrat Don O'Day, current chairman of the board, garnered the least amount of BOE votes.)
