The two incumbents running for re-election will remain on the North Topsail Beach Board of Aldermen.
Don Harte and Dick Macartney retain their seats and will be joined by Richard Peters on the board after unofficial results of Tuesday’s election.
“I’m excited and I look forward to what’s ahead,” Peters said.
Macartney was the top vote getter with 108 votes, or 25.29 percent, followed closely by Harte’s 106 votes, which was 24.82 percent of those cast, and Peters’ 103 votes, or 24.12 percent.
“I’m gratified, but overwhelmed with the support and the job we have to do,” Macartney said. “I’m looking forward to the challenge to keep our town at the forefront of excellence.”
Coming up short this year was Harry Daino and Robert Swantek, who received 55 and 52 votes — 12.88 percent and 12.18 percentage — respectively.
Daino and Swantek could not be reached immediately for comment.
Dan Tuman will serve another term as mayor. In the uncontested race, he received 123 votes, or 91 percent. The other 9 percent — 12 votes — went to write-in candidates.
Election results remain unofficial until the Nov. 12 canvass.
