DARIEN, Conn. — Republican Jayme Stevenson was re-elected as the First Selectman of Darien in Tuesday's election.

Stevenson received 2,470 votes and defeated Democrat Rob Richards, who received 944, and petitioning candidate Chris Noe, who received 24, to secure a fourth term as Darien First Selectman.

In the race for the Board of Selectmen, incumbent Republicans Charles "Kip" Koons and Susan Marks were both re-elected, with 2,176 and 2,316 votes respectively. Democratic incumbent Marc Thorne was re-elected with 1,153 votes and Democratic newcomer Pamela Sparkman was elected with 1,048 votes.
