Woonsocket firefighter Michael Morin's Democratic primary victory for former Rep. Lisa Baldelli-Hunt's vacant Dist. 49 post is official. 

Robert Kando, executive director of the RI Board of Elections, reported the absentee ballot count today had not cost Morin the win.

The official count, with the absentee ballots in, Kando said, is:

Michael Morin: 373
Douglas T. Brown: 334
Mark L. Chenot: 9

Morin, reached at 4:20 p.m. after learning the results, expressed relief that the wait to learn the count was over. "It's been an interesting two days," he said.

Morin said on Tuesday he felt a little subdued, since the absentee ballots had not been counted yet. "Now that it's official, I'm excited," he said. 

Morin acknowledged he still has to best any write-in campaign during the Feb. 25 special election, but, after that, "I can't wait to get working," he said.

Mr. Morin will look out for each and every one of his constituents or he will never be re - elected... That sir is how the voting process works in this Country.

Well sir...keep believing in fairy tales. I sure won't.

Nelson, sad to say you are correct again.
Nelson Aldrich January 25, 2014 at 09:33 AM
Thanks Ron. Hell, i didn't even get a chance to mention Raimondo's hedge...er, pension fund and how he has a problem with that upcoming train wreck. Fodder for later discussions.

That's about all we will agree on. She (he) is a dirty thief of the highest caliber
