Conservatives Take A Beating in Worcester Election, Turnout Dismal

Wednesday, November 08, 2017

 

Mayor Joe Petty

Conservatives Michael and Coreen Gaffney had already quit the race, and a number of other conservatives had disappointing election nights. Just 15 percent of registered voters turned out.

Mayor Joe Petty beat Councilwoman and former Mayor Konnie Lukes 70 percent to 30 percent. 

GOP stalwart Paul Franco got crushed in his effort to win the 5th District Council seat losing to Matthew Wally.

Wally captured 58 percent to Franco’s 42 percent.

On the Worcester School Committee, conservative Donna Color finished a disappointing 7th.
