A Windham town councilor was re-elected to a third term, defeating a political newcomer in a two-way race for an at-large seat.

Councilor Thomas Gleason, 66, defeated David Lydon, 35, a Windham native who has never held elective office, 3,960 to 2,222.

Gleason, a retired train director, has been on the council for five years.

Lydon, a pre-press and information technology manager at Berkeley Mailings in Falmouth, lives in Windham with his wife and three young children.

Also on the ballot were incumbent East District Councilor David Nadeau and three current school board members – Kate Brix, Dawn Dillon and Pete Heanssler – who all ran uncontested for additional three-year terms.
