Northport — Breanna Pinkham Bebb won the special election April 14 to fill out the rest of Zak Hollingshead's term on the Board of Selectmen, by a vote of 101-41 over Ann Frenning Kossuth.

Reached by phone the day after the election, Bebb told The Republican Journal, "I'm excited to be getting to work for the community I love," adding that she has always enjoyed working with the Town Office staff and members of the Board of Selectmen. "I think it's just going to be a great team," she said.

Kossuth, who chairs the town's Broadband Internet Committee, told The Journal April 16 she had withdrawn as a candidate for the Board of Selection for the June 5 election. "I look forward to working together with Breanna to bring fiber to Northport, among other long-term planning initiatives," she said.

Bebb is now the only candidate for the board in the June election, when the seat she just won is up for reelection for a three-year term. In addition, Amon Morse III is running unopposed for reelection as road commissioner and Sandy Wallace is running unopposed for the board of Edna Drinkwater School.
