September 12, 2012

LINCOLN — In an night of change for local members of the General Assembly, incumbent Dist. 46 state Representative Jeremiah T. O'Grady could point to hard work on his primary campaign as having made a connection with local voters.
O'Grady topped his Democratic primary challenger John D. Barr III in a tally of 736 votes to 416, or 63.8 percent of the turnout to Barr's 36.1 percent, according to town election results.
The results cleared the way for O'Grady, seeking his second two-year term in the General Assembly, to enter a four-way contest with Republican Matthew A. Guerra, and Independent candidates, Mary Ann Shallcross Smith and Paul DiDomenico.
