OLD TOWN, Maine — A former city councilor and a political newcomer emerged as the winners in a three-way race Tuesday for two openings on the City Council.

David Mahan, who had served three terms on the council when he lost his re-election bid last year, was the top vote getter with 2,133 votes cast for him, according to City Clerk Patty Brochu. Winning the second seat was John Nuttall, who had 1,680 votes.

The third candidate was Joseph Pluff, who had 1,570 votes.

Also on Election Day, voters filled two RSU 34 school board seats and elected a Ward 1 warden and ward clerk. James Dill and Roxane Dubay, who were unopposed for re-election to the school board, received 2,978 and 2,346 votes, respectively. Warden candidate Sharon St. John, who also was unopposed, won her re-election bid with 3,141 votes.

No one stepped forward as a candidate for the ward clerk post. Brochu said resident Marilyn Sibley received one write-in vote, but as of Wednesday it was not clear if she would accept the position.
