All Stoneham incumbents won their re-election bids in Tuesday's election, although not without some close races.
UPDATE Wednesday, 10:55 a.m.: Stoneham Town Clerk Maria Sagarino said the final official numbers changed "very slightly" from Tuesday night's unofficial results. The new results are attached as a PDF in the box to the right and the article has been updated. ORIGINAL ARTICLE: The Community Preservation Act (CPA) isn't coming to Stoneham, and the incumbents are back in office.

No election-related submissions will be posted on Stoneham Patch after Friday, March 29, leading up to the Town Election on Tuesday, April 2.
To readers and users of Stoneham Patch, I'm Daniel DeMaina, associate regional editor at Patch. In my time before Patch while working for weekly newspapers, we would not publish any election-related submissions in the final issue before an election, because if there was a factual error, we wouldn't be able to issue a correction before election day. It's different for us online, since we're publishing every day, but we'd still like to err on the side of caution.

This gives us the weekend and Monday as a buffer zone to make any factual corrections, if necessary. …
