Wellesley Town Clerk KC Kato and Senior Clerk Christine Kehoe joined forces on Wednesday to do the random drawing for the order in which three Board of Selectmen candidates will be listed on the ballot for the Sept. 1 Special Election.
A replacement to fill Jack Morgan’s seat into March will be chosen by voters. Morgan resigned in May because he was moving out of town.
Kato showed off three scraps of
paper stationery, each bearing a candidate’s name. They went into an elaborate blue bin, perhaps an RDF Give & Take find, possibly circa 1970. Kehoe then drew them out one by one, announcing the names. In order:
- Gwen Baker
- Colette Aufranc
- Odessa Sanchez
So, not quite alphabetical.
