EASTON, Conn. - Republicans swept most of the races in Easton's election Tuesday night, but a write-in campaign stalled results for the first selectman seat, officials said.

Republican first selectman candidate Adam Dunsby ran unopposed. But a write-in campaign for Val Buckley stopped election officials from completing the count and declaring a winner by early Wednesday.

The following results were from official reports Tuesday night:

Republican Scott S. Centrella beat Democrat Robert Lessler for the one open selectman seat.

Diana Christine Halloran, a Republican, won the vote for Town Clerk over Democrat Paul Coppinger.

Republican Wendy Bowditch won the race for Town Treasurer against Democrat Michael Kivell.

Christine Calvert won the race for Tax Collector against Democrat Jonathan Rosenthal.

Republican candidates Andrew R. Kachele and Christian Griffin won out over Democrat Gabriel Rossi Jr. for the two open seats on the Board of Finance.

Republican Randy Hicks beat Democrat Regina Bobroske for an open seat on the Board of Education.

John Miranda, a Republican candidate for the Board of Assessment Appeals, won the seat in an unopposed race.

Republican Charles Lynch beat Democrat Patricia Berlin for a seat on the Zoning Board of Appeals.

Three of the four Republican candidates, George Beno, John Johnston and Joseph Silhavy, won the four open spots for constable in Easton over their Democrat opponents David Katz, Richard Greiser and Gloria Bindelglass. Democrat Irving Silverman also won a constable spot.

Republican Gail Gay beat Democrat Janet Gordon for library trustee.

Republicans Todd Johnston and Catherine Gombas won over their Democratic opponents Heidi Armster and Andrea Kingsley to join the Region 9 Board of Education.
