Urgo wins second term as first selectman of North Stonington
North Stonington — First Selectman Michael Urgo, an Independent candidate endorsed by town Democrats, defeated Republican challenger Brett L. Mastroianni to secure a second term in office.
The vote was 907 for Urgo and 877 for Mastroianni, according to unofficial results.
Urgo, 42, who owns the Farmers Insurance Agency on Norwich-Westerly Road, said by phone Tuesday night that he was "humbled and honored" for the opportunity to continue to lead the town. He said he was looking forward to seeing the completion of the solar projects at the town's school buildings and Center for Emergency Services, and continued economic development in the town.
"We're putting the pieces into place to get success there," Urgo said.
Urgo joins Republican Robert A. Carlson and Nita Kincaid, an unaffiliated candidate who sought reelection as a Democrat, to make up the Board of Selectmen. Carlson got 966 votes and Kincaid got 738 votes, according to unofficial results.
Democrat Mark S. Donahue was elected as town treasurer, unofficial results show.
