Live From Room 9

There’s nothing quite like the excitement of live unscripted television, especially on an Election Night. WCTV’s coverage from Town Hall went for about 45 minutes Saturday Night and included not just the results, but also interviews with each of the 8 candidates on the ballot.

As it is every year, Room 9 at Town Hall (the usual meeting place for the Board of Selectmen) was transformed into an Election Night Headquarters for the candidates and the TV broadcast. There was an overflow crowd as people waited on Town Clerk Sharon George to read the numbers.
