    BARRE — City Councilor Michael Boutin fared better than the municipal budget Tuesday, winning re-election in Barre’s only contested race.

    Boutin, a one-term councilor, narrowly defeated Maplewood Avenue resident Jeffrey Friot in Ward 2.

    Boutin’s margin of victory was 20 votes, according to still-unofficial results. He defeated Friot, 212-192, in a race where there was one write-in, eight spoiled ballots and 39 voters chose not to cast a ballot for either candidate.

    Meanwhile, a man whose name wasn’t on Tuesday’s ballot in Barre has landed a seat on the local school board.

    Lester Felch Jr. received more than twice the 30 write-in votes he needed to secure a three-year seat on the school board. That leaves one seat left to fill on the city’s school board and two vacancies on the Spaulding High School board. Those seats will be filled through the appointment process.
