Who will fill new mayor’s rep seat?

November 6, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Voters may be suffering from battle fatigue after enduring a long and grueling mayoral contest, but it’s too soon to climb out of the foxhole just yet.

There’s going to be more political flak flying around the race for the soon-to-be vacant House seat of the mayor-elect, state Rep. Lisa Baldelli-Hunt (D-Dist. 49). Her resounding victory over two-term incumbent Mayor Leo T. Fontaine Tuesday means she must resign from the House so the secretary of state can schedule a special election to identify her successor.

WOONSOCKET – State Rep. Lisa Baldelli-Hunt (D-Dist. 49) swept to victory in the mayor’s race last night before a raucous and cheering crowd of supporters who seemed to relish the moment as much as she did.
The House lawmaker, who is midway through her fourth term, trounced incumbent Mayor Leo T. Fontaine by a margin of better than 2-1. The Board of Canvassers had the tally at 4,372-2,182.
