Baldelli-Hunt wins big in primary; will face Fontaine Nov. 5

October 8, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Call it the Lisa Landslide.
Backed by an angry electorate demanding change, State Rep. Lisa Baldelli-Hunt (D-Dist. 49) finished far ahead of the pack in a four-way primary for mayor last night, outdistancing incumbent Mayor Leo T. Fontaine by a margin of better than 3-1.
Fontaine’s collection of 881 votes gave him a distant second-place finish next to Hunt’s 2,746 – good enough to keep him alive for a general election showdown against Hunt on Nov. 5. But it was the kind of good that had jaws gaping and heads shaking in disbelief as the results were clocked at Ciro’s Tavern.
