First Selectman Thomas Weik is back in the saddle for a second two-year term in Morris after defeating Kevin DeRoehn in Tuesday's election, 555-396.
 
Selectman Erica Dorsett-Mathews, Weik’s running mate, earned a second term with 530 votes. Selectman Vincent Aiello regained his seat with 420 votes and will serve a third term. DeRoehn, an unaffiliated voter running with the support of the Democratic Party, did not receive enough votes to win a seat as a selectman.
 
Weik and Dorsett-Mathews capitalized on widespread Republican support and strong support from unaffiliated voters in fighting back a determined challenge by DeRoehn and Aiello.
