COVENTRYâ€” The November election will continue as a nonpartisan election as decided upon at the Coventry Town Council meeting Monday evening. In a 2-1 vote, with council member Karen Carlson voting not to put candidatesâ€™ affiliation on the ballot and Council President Gary Cote and Vice President Kerry McGee voting to change it back to a partisan election, listing the candidateâ€™s party association, it appeared that the upcoming elections would list party affiliations.
The town charter, however, states there must be three votes to approve or deny a motion during a council meeting and since member Gregory Laboissonniere was not in attendance due to a recent surgery, the motion did not carry. The District 5 seat vacated by Ted Jendzejec remains empty.
