Unexpected Large Turnout For Water District Election

An overflow crowd of more than 200 people filled a conference room at the Sagamore Beach Fire Station Wednesday night. Residents packed the room to cast their vote in the North Sagamore Water District water commissioner election. People who showed up to vote said that the election typically draws only a few dozen residents.


Wednesday night, incumbent George W. Sala was reelected over challenger Robert J. Crowley by a vote of 110-31.

Mr. Sala said that he appreciated being reelected and was grateful for all the support he received.

He said that he is looking forward to getting back to work with his fellow commissioners, Mark J. Melchionda and Mark G. Bergeron, on several important capital projects, Those include painting the Norris Road water tank, completing a connection with the Town of Plymouth that would provide water to the district in the event of a water emergency, and replacing old water meters at some homes that are not accurately measuring water usage.
