Interesting correlation of gender composition and voting record.Board member Edward J. Simoncini Jr. made it clear the reaction affected his vote. “It’s no longer under consideration — thank you, you made the difference,” Simoncini said after a brief meeting Wednesday in which the three-member board, without opening the question to the public, voted 2-1 to kill the proposal.
“It is obvious the town is against it and therefore I am against it,” Simoncini said. Board member Peter M. Munro also voted to withdraw the proposal. He made no public comment.
Andrea Crete, the board chairwoman, cast the sole vote against withdrawing the proposal.

My bullshit detector is going off, these people aren't smart enough on their own to come up with this shit.
