The primaries might be over, but that doesn’t mean the work is over for the candidates who won.
The votes have been counted, and the race for November is on.
Lindsay Sabadosa won the Democratic primary for the 1st Hampshire District, the seat long held by the late Peter Kocot. Although she will not face a challenger in the fall, there is still work to be done before November.
“Now the work is going to be getting out there and meeting the people we didn’t meet the first time around and having more conversations because even if there is no one else running, there is still an election in November and I want to see voters turn out for that too,” Sabadosa said.
Daniel Carey won the 2nd Hampshire District seat. He beat Marie McCourt.
Mindy Domb came out on top in the 3rd Hampshire District.
“People are motivated to make a change in this political climate and we are not just concerned nationally, we are concerned about the grassroots right here where we live,” Deborah Snow in Northampton said. “We know that makes a huge difference in our everyday life.”
Amherst’s new Town Council candidates have narrowed. Four candidates have qualified as councilor-at-large finalists. Come November, it will be a 13-member council out of an original 33 candidates.
Jo Comerford beat Chelsea Kline to fill the Hampshire, Franklin and Worcester State Senate seat. The seat formerly held by Senate President Stanley Rosenberg, who resigned this past Spring.
