The final tally of mail ballots was conducted last night at the RI Board of Elections, and while I picked up another 200 votes, it was not enough. I thank everyone in Portsmouth who voted for me, and I am honored to have had the opportunity to run.
To our newly elected Council members -- best wishes for much success as you work together for the town we all love.
A special shout-out to the Portsmouth Democratic team, who were a great bunch of folks to run with. Congratulations to Kevin Aguiar, Mark Ryan, and Linda Ujifusa for taking seats on the Council. To Emily Copeland, Terri Cortvriend, and Andrew Kelly on the School Committee. And to Jenn West for taking the Town Clerk office in the last election that will ever be held for that position (since Portsmouth also voted to make it appointed.)
Congratulations to Susan Donovan, newly elected Representative, and returning Reps Dennis Canario and Jay Edwards who have served Portsmouth so well at the State House. And a big congratulations to Jim Seveney, who triumphed over incumbent Republican John Pagliarini to become our State Senator.
