SCARBOROUGH — Incumbents Judith Roy and Michael Wood each won another term on the Town Council, beating back a challenge from newcomer Kerry Corthell.


Roy got 5,220 votes, Wood got 5,411 votes and Corthell got 3,971.

In a separate race, Richard Sullivan Jr. defeated James Benedict and Iver Carlsen to serve the one year left in the term of Shawn Babine.

Sullivan got 3,863 votes, Carlsen got 2,071 and Benedict got 1,453.

Keeping taxes down was a priority for Corthell, Roy and Wood. Corthell stressed “out of the box” thinking for the school budget, Roy said the town must distinguish between wants and needs and Wood said it’s realistic to expect tax increases in the 1 to 2 percent range.

In the race for Babine’s seat, Benedict and Sullivan emphasized making Scarborough more business friendly. Carlsen said his experience in business and as a school administrator could be useful to the town.
