Just after 8 p.m., family, supporters and a few stragglers were inside the Belmont Lions Club at the MBTA commuter rail station to join state representative candidate Margaret Hegarty to undergo the agonizing act that all candidate's must suffer through: counting votes. As the campaign team was in a backroom – actually the kitchen – were calculating the votes from poll watchers at 15 precincts in Belmont, Arlington and Cambridge, the handful of early arrivals were treated to boxes of pizza, beers and the king of all election-night food, Chinese.

The candidates, incumbents and issues that will be affecting Belmont.

The 22-year-old Bentley senior has taken out nomination papers to replace Brownsberger.
It was while interning this past summer in Will Brownsberger's state representative office that college student Robert Paul Reardon Jr. began entertaining the idea of running for political office. "I had the opportunity to see the positive effects you can have for people as an elected official," said Reardon, who prefers to go by Bobby. And when Brownsberger won a special election to the state Senate in January, the Van Ness Road resident decided that he wanted to perform the same work for the community. In the past week, Reardon has taken out nomination papers and submitting them to town officials in Belmont, Cambridge and Arlington for a run to replace Brownsberger as state representative in the 24th Middlesex District.
