GOP Retains Majority In Shrewsbury

first_imgBy John BurtonSHREWSBURY – This was not the year for change for Shrewsbury given the election results.Despite a year when Democrats had a full slate of candidates – the first in many, many election seasons in the borough – all four Republican incumbents were easily re-elected.This year voters were asked to select two candidates to fill one-year unexpired terms and two for the full three-year term on the six-member borough council.The end result was Republicans Erik Anderson won the one-year term with 1,355 votes and Thomas L. Moran winning 1,277, handily defeating Democrats Shane Berkelaar who won 882 votes, and Patrick DiBello, who received 870.For the three-year terms, Republicans Deidre DerAsadourian won 1,250 votes and Peter J. Meyer got 1,242. Their Democratic challengers John M. Collins and Donald Sena won 947 and 948 votes, respectively.“I think it went along straight party lines,” in this election year in a community where registered Republicans outnumber Democrats, said Norma Rosenbloom, Democratic municipal chair, explaining the defeat.According to the Monmouth County Clerk’s Office, Shrewsbury has 1,018 registered Republicans, 802 Democrats and 1,449 unaffiliated voters.Regardless of the results, Rosenbloom said there will be competitive elections going forward. “It rankles me that people don’t have a choice,” she said. “Even if you don’t vote for the candidate, you should have a choice.”Given his and his running mates’ strong showing, Anderson sees it as the voters’ way of rewarding elected officials for their efforts.“I think the voters recognize that our slate of candidates is truly dedicated to the town and work very, very hard to make it a special place to live,” paying special attention to spending and quality of life issues, Anderson said.last_img read more

McLaughlin scores twice as Saints keep on marching in BCIHL

first_imgThe Selkirk Saints took another step in credibility after snapping the 25-game home unbeaten streak of the Simon Fraser University Clan Saturday at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre in Burnaby.Connor McLaughlin’s two first period goals powered the Saints to a 5-3 B.C. Intercolligiate League victory over the Clan.Selkirk College now holds a commanding eight-point advantage over the Clan in BCIHL standings.The win comes on the heels of a 7-4 win over Thompson Rivers University Friday at the Kamloops Memorial Arena.”We’re very pleased to have beaten an excellent team in a rink where it’s been as tough as it gets to come away with points,” said Saints head coach Jeff Dubois. “The effort we saw tonight from our whole group, top to bottom, is exactly what you need to be successful on a regular basis in our league.”Brodie Gibbon, Logan Proulx and Jackson Garret also scored for the Saints, which led 5-0 midway through the game.But SFU began to battle back on a power-play goal by 2011/12 BCIHL MVP Ben Van Lare, who went on to score twice more in the third period to pull SFU within two.That was as close as the game would get, however, as the Saints bore down late to secure the win. Netminder Alex Sirard shone for Selkirk in collecting his fifth win of the season, turning aside 39 shots on the night.His teammates chased SFU starter Graeme Gordon midway through he second period. He was replaced by Evan Kurylo, who stopped the nine shots he saw over the remainder of the game.Friday, two late second-period goals by McLaughlin, with nine seconds left in the frame, and Kam Crawford, snapped a 4-4 tie powering Selkirk to the win.Jordan Wood scored twice for the Saints with single going to Thomas Hardy, Cody Fidgett and Garrett.The Saints, 8-0,  are next in action on Friday (November 9) when they return to the Lower Mainland to face Trinity Western University.last_img read more
