In 2013 Medford voters will choose candidates for local office as well as for Congress.
Every two years Medford voters choose their local leaders. On Tuesday, November 5 voters selected the Mayor, School Committee members, and City Council members (results below).
The departure of long-time Democratic Congressman Ed Markey for the Senate has made a special election for Congress necessary. The special election for Congress is taking place on Tuesday, December 10.

Unofficial Results- Municipal Election
In 2011, no School Committee member received more votes than a city councilor. Paul Camuso was the top “vote getter” in the city, with 5,008 votes.
This year, nearly all members of the School Committee, who ran uncontested, earned more votes than the City Council candidates. Thirteen candidates were running for seven seats on the Council, which likely resulted in different levels of support and ballots cast.
