Roxann Wedegartner wins Greenfield mayoral race

Franklin County

GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – In a close three-way race, Greenfield residents elected former planning board chair Roxann Wedegartner as their next mayor.

With all precincts reporting, Wedegartner emerged the top vote-getter, with 38% of the vote. City Councilor Sheila Gilmour finished close behind with 34%, and City Councilor Brickett Allis, who ran a write-in campaign, finished third with 28%. Voter turnout in the city was strong for a municipal election. By late Tuesday afternoon, it was at 32.2% of registered voters.

The mayor’s seat was open this year, as incumbent Mayor William Martin decided not to run for re-election.

Wedegartner will become only the third person in Greenfield’s history to hold the office of mayor.
