BRUNSWICK

Kathy Wilson, vice chairwoman of the Brunswick Town Council, fended off a challenge from Whitney Parrish to win re-election for a second three-year term. Wilson received 2,960 votes to Parrish’s 2,524.

Wilson, a business owner who grew up in Brunswick, said she hopes to balance the needs of all townspeople when considering issues that come before the council.

“Once again, I am humbled by the commitment and sense of community that is ever present in Brunswick, and honored to be entrusted with part of its future,” Wilson wrote in a letter to The Times Record early this morning.

Wilson praised her opponent as a “warm, intelligent, involved person.”

“I hope she will continue to be involved and bring her knowledge to town issues and committees,” Wilson wrote.

Also elected to the council was James Mason, who ran unopposed for District 7, Councilor Dan Harris’ current seat, and Christopher Watkinson, who ran unopposed for the District 5 seat, Councilor Sarah Brayman’s current position.

School board incumbents Sarah Singer, representing District 7, and James Grant, representing District 5, were re-elected, having run unopposed.

Mirroring the mood of the Maine, Brunswick residents handily rejected Question

1 on the state ballot — allowing slot machines or casinos to be operated in York

County — 807-5,357.

Brunswick residents sided in favor of a citizens’ initiative to expand Medicaid coverage to provide health insurance for people less than age 65 living at or below 138 percent of the federal poverty level, 4,726-1,496.

Brunswick residents also approved a $105 million bond package to improve infrastructure across the state, such as bridges, roads and culverts, by a 5,180-972 vote.
