Voters in North Adams have elected Democrat Richard Alcombright to a third term as mayor.
Receiving 59 percent of the vote, Mayor Alcombright will remain in office for another two-year term.
“It’s just more of the same,” Alcombright said. “Keeping my feet to the fire. More economic development, more expansion, more business. Whatever we can do to grow this community.”
Republican challenger Robert Moulton Jr., a former city councilor, received 41 percent of the vote. With roughly 3,600 people voting, he points toward voter apathy as a reason for his defeat.
