Mass Primary Results

Friday, September 07, 2012

 

Mary Keefe has come out on top in the hotly-contested five-way Democratic primary for State Representative in Worcester's 15th District.

The progressive community organizer bested School Committee member Dianna Biancheria, City Councilor Kate Toomey, local businessman Frank Beshai and apprentice plumber Ralph Perez, in that order.

Keefe is running for the open seat of former Rep. Vincent Pedone, who resigned his office in January, to represent the city's first minority-majority district on Beacon Hill.

Observers have touted the importance of the primary race in the heavily-Democratic district as the winner is expected to cruise through the general election against Republican candidate Brian O'Malley straight to the State House.

Very low turnout was predicted for the rare Thursday election, and official results proved those predictions right, with the winner Keefe flirting with just 1,000 votes.
