A small percentage turned out to vote in Monday's town election.
Even with Jennifer Drohan throwing her hat in the ring as a write-in candidate for the Northborough K-8 School Committee, there were still no contested races in the Northborough town election. Seemingly, that could account for the low voter turnout. Of the 10,510 registered voters in Northborough, 293 voted in Monday's election, accounting for 2.79 percent of the voters. Drohan was successful with her write-in campaign, and got 64 votes, indicating she will accept the position, according to Town Clerk Andy Dowd. Frederick George was elected as town moderator for another term with 268 votes. With 253 votes, Leslie Rutan returns to her seat on the Board of Selectmen. Michelle Gillespie, too, will continue on the Planning Board, pulling in …

A political newcomer will face a long-time Massachusetts politician in the race to be the Bay State's next U.S. senator.

The area Republican town and city committees sponsored Monday night's meet and greet.
Two of the three Republican candidates for U.S. Senate told voters at Julio's Liquors in Westborough Monday night that enabling the dream they and their parents had and lived requires changes in Washington, D.C.

Northborough voted for Scott Brown and owns more hybrid cars than the state average.
Monday, April 15
Northborough is green and red. That’s what we found when we compared data from the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles to the vote in the 2012 U.S. Senate race. You can see the results in the map above: Large circles suggest towns with more hybrid ownership per capita, and the red/blue color suggests which way those towns voted last year. In Northborough, 27.3 of every 1,000 vehicles is a hybrid, compared to the state average of 18. Patch’s research suggests the state has a good number of what might be called “green Republican” communities. More than 40 percent of the communities where Republican Scott Brown carried the vote have an above average numbers of hybrids. The data is a nice rebuttal to the national trends of hybrid/GOP …

A look back at what happened over the past week in the U.S. Senate race.
Just a little more than two weeks until the primary election to see which Democrat and Republican will go head to head to fill the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by John Kerry’s appointment to Secretary of State. Monday night, U.S. Congressmen Stephen Lynch, D-South Boston, and Edward Markey, D-Malden, met in their second debate which contained few fireworks. The debate, held at the University of Massachusetts Lowell and sponsored by the college and the Boston Herald, lasted about 45 minutes and touched a wide variety of issues on which the two Democrats mostly agreed. On Wednesday night, it was the Republicans’ turn as they went face to face in the WBZ-TV studios moderated by the station’s Jon Keller. Former U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan…
