Alison Genest topped the ticket.
“I’m honored and humbled by the overwhelming response from the voters. Obviously they responded to my positive message of change for Dracut. There were a lot of negative forces that tried to work against me, and I’m so glad that the voters saw through it and they rejected those voices,” she said. “And this is a new day for Dracut.”
Genest has said her main priorities are keeping Dracut affordable and supporting the town’s public safety departments, as well as focusing on accountability at Town Hall.
