SOUTH HADLEY —  Terie Brin Fleury won a contested election for Fire District 1 clerk/treasurer, edging out competitor Christine Curtis.

Fleury won with 662 votes, while Curtis received 540 votes, according to current clerk/treasurer Ira Brezinsky. Brezinsky did not run for re-election.

Speaking with the Gazette during polling hours Tuesday,  Fleury said she was running “to get the district the resources they need to help the community,” citing her experience in human resources, payroll and other financial matters.

Fleury is an administrative assistant at Smith College.

Elections for Fire Districts 1 and 2 were held on the same day as the presidential primary and town election. No other fire district elections were contested.
