WOONSOCKET â€“ Michael A. Morin secured his win in the cityâ€™s Democratic primary for its District 49 state representative seat on Thursday, adding slightly to his margin of victory over second-place finisher Douglas T. Brown with the counting of remaining paper and provisional ballots at the state Board of Elections in Providence.
With the absence of a Republican opponent, Morin will now appear as the only candidate on the ballot for the seatâ€™s special election on Feb. 25. The election was called to fill the unexpired Dist. 49 term resulting from Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Huntâ€™s resignation as Dist. 49 representative upon her inauguration in December.
