Filipkowski's term would have ended in May 2012, had he not been recalled.[2]

Voters chose Richard P. Chabot to replace the recalled Filipkowski.[1] Mr. Chabot, who had previously served on the Board of Selectmen for 15 years, said of his candidacy, "“It didn’t look like anyone else was going to step forward, so I did what needed to be done."[2] Chabot is also credited with having spearheaded the effort to recall Filipkowski.[2] The recall petition alleged that Filipkowski engaged in "collusion, discrimination and violation of the state Open Meeting Law;" charges that Filipkowski repeatedly denied.[1]
