Anderson wins selectman seat over Devine

(Continued)

Previously, Devine, 55, became known for run-ins with local police and former Salisbury police Chief David L’Esperance. Devine has accused local law enforcement of misconduct and eventually sued the police department and the town. The suit was thrown out after it was determined her complaints didn’t merit a decision.

Devine said she wished Anderson well and was happy she was able to draw so many people to the polls.

“I just want to thank my supporters who I didn’t know existed until I knocked on some doors,” Devine said.

Asked if she would consider another run for selectmen Devine quoted Winston Churchill’s mantra about never giving up and added she was committed to ensuring transparency in town government.

“I want to make a difference,” Devine said.
