FREEPORT, Maine — Sarah Tracy won Wednesday’s special election for the Town Council District 2 seat by a more than 2-1 margin.

Tracy defeated Joyce Clarkson-Veilleux, 304-133, in the contest between political neophytes. Her election fills a vacancy created by the resignation in January of former Councilor Kate Arno.

Tracy will be the fourth new councilor seated in recent months. The other recently elected councilors are Andrew Wellen, Melanie Sachs and Scott Gleeson.
