Georgetown residents re-elected Richard Donaldson to serve a second three-year term on the town’s board of selectmen.

Donaldson received 254 votes Tuesday, trumping his challenger, Aria Eee, who earned 188, according to election results provided by Election Warden Amanda Campbell.

Donaldson did not return requests for comment Wednesday.

He was elected to his selectman position unopposed in 2018, his first role in municipal politics after spending 30 years in the Navy and retiring as a lieutenant commander.

In the same year he ran unsuccessfully against Democrat Sen. Eloise Vitelli as a Republican to represent Senate District 23 in the Maine Legislature. During that campaign, several of his old Facebook posts were criticized by state Democrats for being racist and homophobic. All of the posts were published on Donaldson’s private Facebook account in 2015 and 2016.
