Quick overview of Bristol results

I don't have numbers, but here's what I know:
1. The chief operating officer referendum went down to a big defeat.
2. Chris Wright beat Jill Fitzgerald in the 77th District.
3. It appears that Bill Hamzy won reelection in the 78th District.
4. Bristol voted for Barack Obama by something like a 2-1 margin.
5. I think the noncontroversial charter questions in Bristol also lost, but we'll see. It was close.
6. Frank Nicastro won a second term easily in the 79th District.
7. Betty Boukus won another term in the 22nd District.
I'll have more later.

Thanks for the results, Steve.

The 77th is going to be occupied by arguably one of the most dull people ever to hold state office in Bristol. People take notice. It's going to be interesting.

I would like to see the numbers. I'm disappointed that Fitzgerald lost. I crossed party lines to vote for her and for Ron Burns when he ran against Michele. She had a better chance at representing Bristol the right way than Wright does. No one will give him the time of day at the Capital. Mark my words - it will be a waste of 2 years.

How about "Bill Hamzy won easily in the 78th district"?

We appreciate you, Bill, even if Steve doesn't. Congrats!
