MCFL: Our candidate wins in 12th Bristol!

by: MCFL Press Release

Wed Sep 21, 2011 at 11:41:00 AM EDT


Keiko Orrall, who was backed by the MCFL State PAC, won the special election for State Representative.   The seat had been held by the opposition party for 30 years and her opponent had strong union backing.

Madeline McComish reports that the PAC made 800 phone calls and mailed to 800 plus households. She asked me to thank all of you who voted and those who contacted people in the district. The difference was less than 300 votes! Keiko will be another State House vote to protect life.

I thought you might enjoy the report from the State House News. Anne

GOP'S ORRALL TAKES HOUSE SEAT LONG HELD BY DEMOCRATS

By Kyle Cheney
STATE HOUSE NEWS SERVICE

STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, SEPT. 21, 2011.....Buoyed by strong turnout in her hometown of Lakeville, Keiko Orrall, a Republican and former member of the community's finance committee, won a special election to the Massachusetts House, flipping the 12th Bristol seat from Democratic control for the first time in more than 30 years.

Orrall defeated Roger Brunelle, a Middleborough Democrat with strong labor backing, capturing an estimated 54 percent of the vote in a special election to fill the 12th Bristol seat vacated in June by Stephen Canessa, a New Bedford Democrat who left to take a post at Southcoast Health Systems.

Voters in Lakeville, a community of about 10,000 residents, turned out in greater numbers than nearby New Bedford precincts, choosing Orrall by a three-to-one margin. Brunelle won New Bedford handily but the small turnout, less than 11 percent, helped propel Orrall to victory. In addition to New Bedford and Lakeville, the district includes portions of Freetown, Taunton and Middleborough.

Overall Orrall won 2,135 votes to Brunelle's 1,761, according to unofficial returns. Sen. Scott Brown endorsed her candidacy during the campaign.
