Election Results

We now have two new Selectmen : Steve Burgess and Craig Toothaker.
Congratulations and best wishes to both of them .
Thank you to Cindy Prescott, Charlie Gibbs, and Jeff Watson for coming forward and offering their time and skills to what is pretty much a thankless job. We hope they will stay involved in town affairs.

Dunton enters guilty plea in $200,000 embezzlement from Newburgh

Thistle told reporters after Monday’s hearing that he hopes Dunton’s guilty plea, along with her previous lack of a criminal record, will persuade the court to impose a sentence at the low end of that range. He said other municipal embezzlement convictions in Maine have resulted in sentences of anywhere from nine months to three years. However, Dunton’s sentencing hearing will involve testimony from witnesses, including numerous Newburgh residents who are furious with her for what she did.
