Union Leader Correspondent John Koziol writes:

After 10 years on the job, Patricia Kucharski hung up her town clerk’s hat on Tuesday, overseeing elections in this town of less than 300 residents, most of whom, as has been the case for the past decade, were expected to come to the polls.

“We have an uncontested ballot,” Kucharski said, adding that despite that fact, the turnout had been “steady.” Kucharski, who chose not to seek reelection, said she expected to see the better part of the town’s 270 registered voters come out to the polls yesterday to exercise their franchise.

The number of voters is admittedly small, said Kucharski, “but we usually do 80 to 90 percent turnout.”

For a non-partisan election, “We’ve got a lot of people who are pretty active,” said Kucharski, who will likely be succeeded by Reggie Breeckner, the lone candidate for town clerk. With one exception, all seats on the Waterville Valley town ballot had at least one person seeking the post, and, for another year, there was no controversy, Kucharski said.
