Recounts triggered for Groton school board, RTM

Groton — Recounts have been triggered in the race for Board of Education and four district races for Representative Town Meeting, Town Clerk Betsy Moukawsher said Thursday.

The recount is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. on Nov. 12 in the Town Hall Annex.

A recount is required in Connecticut if the vote difference between candidates is less than one-half of 1 percent or fewer than 20 votes, unless the losing candidate waives it.

In the school board race, Republican incumbent Robert E. Peruzzotti lost his seat to Democrat Joey Schick by 17 votes.

In District 1, Republican Joan Steinford lost her RTM seat to Democrat Joe Baril by three votes.

In District 2, Republican Keith Hedrick lost to Jackie Massett, also a Republican, by 11 votes.

In District 5, there is a three-way race. Republican Scott Aument Sr. lost by 19 votes to Republican John F. Scott IV and Democrat Richard Waselik, both tied with 384 votes.

In District 7, Republican Matthew J. Morton Jr., lost by 14 votes to Republican Lynn Crockett Hubbard.
