Incumbent James Healy has been on the board for 14 years and he was brief in his remarks. “Thank you,” Healy said to a packed audience.
Incumbent Tony Michelassi was the youngest member ever elected to the board when he won in 2008. “I look forward to working with everyone on the new board,” said Michelassi.
