Meet Provincetown, Massachusetts’ newest select board member: John Golden ’77.

 

John Golden moves up the town government ranks

PROVINCETOWN — The race to fill the single select board seat came to an end Thursday night with candidate John Golden beating out Michela Carew-Murphy by a vote of 582 to 181.

“I’m overwhelmed by the amount of support,” said an exhausted Golden following the election results. “I don’t know if you’d call it a landslide, but it’s pretty good. I’m heartened by it.”

Golden, 62, and Carew-Murphy, 31, have been campaigning to fill the position of former select board member Tom Donegan, who resigned unexpectedly in early December. Golden will now serve out the remainder of Donegan’s term until the spring election when two seats will be open. Select board chair Cheryl Andrews’ term will also expire and be up for re-election. Golden and Carew-Murphy said during previous interviews that they planned to run again in the spring for a three-year term, but now Carew-Murphy is not so sure. The regular town election will be held on May 14 if the state legislature approves a charter change; otherwise it will be on June 18.
