Just 13 percent of the town's registered voters voted on Tuesday.
With 36 percent and 28 percent of the votes, respectively, Janet Adachi and Katie Green won the two Board of Selectmen seats up for grabs Tuesday during Annual Town Election. The duo easily beat out Margaret Busse and Erik Romaniak, who garnered just 19 percent and 10 percent, respectively. Of the 14,126 registered Acton voters, only 13 percent hit the polls Tuesday. An email seeking comment from Adachi and Green was not immediately answered Tuesday night. Acton Patch will post their comments later on Wednesday.

Resident Mary Ann Ashton asks other residents to vote for Green.
I have had the pleasure of working with Katie Green in her volunteer activities with the League of Women Voters for the last several years. She has proven herself to be a quick learner, who shows an ability to both grasp the big picture and follow through on the details. On March 26, I will be voting for Katie for Acton’s Board of Selectmen. In her work as a legislative aide for four years, she has developed an understanding of the issues facing towns like Acton. She knows how the state legislative process works and understands the challenges that we face at the local level. Striving for efficiencies and continued constraints on finances will require all of us to think about how we can share municipal services with other towns, and Katie’s…

Resident Greg Jarboe says Green is the right person to be on the Board of Selectmen.
In the upcoming Acton town election, I’m voting for Katie Green for Selectman for three key reasons. First, Katie has experience with the state legislative process.

Second, Katie also has experience with leaders in neighboring communities, which is important when dealing with regionalization. As a product of …

Resident Roland Bourdon says Margaret Busse is the right person to be on the town's board.
I am writing to you today to support Margaret Busse for the Town of Acton Selectmen. I have known Margaret for a about four years as a member of the Town of Acton Planning Board and I feel that Margaret has all of the leadership qualities to lead Acton during these difficult financial times in our country and state. During Margaret's tenure on the Planning Board, I have found her to be fully prepared and thoughtful in her approach to Planning Issues and always puts the citizens of Acton first. This has been demonstrated time and time again with her tireless leadership as Chair of the Acton 2020 Committee. With Margaret's leadership the Acton 2020 has been a great success and provides a framework to help guide Acton's planning now and …

Katie Green announces her candidacy for Acton Board of Selectmen.
When I moved to Acton over three years ago, the community welcomed me with open arms. As I began to meet people, I was taken by how devoted so many were to making the town the best that it could be. I was encouraged to get involved and currently volunteer on both the Acton Democratic Town Committee and the Acton-Area League of Women Voters. Working for four years as the legislative aide for one of Acton’s state representatives, I developed a further understanding of the issues important to the town. I also learned how to work with people from all backgrounds and plan to actively seek out differing viewpoints so that I can better represent the entire community. A product of the Hudson, Mass., public school system and the daughter of a …
