We want to congratulate Dan Ryan and RoseLee Vincent on their victories Tuesday in their respective Democratic primary elections for the position of State Representative.
Ryan and Vincent will now proceed to the final election on April 1. Ryan does not have an opponent but the aide to Congressman Michael Capuano certainly deserves a vote of strong support from Chelsea residents on that day.
Vincent will be facing Chelsea Republican nominee Todd Taylor in the final.
We also want to credit the other candidates, Linda Rosa, Chris Remmes and Chelsea’s Josh Monahan and Roy Avellaneda for their outstanding campaigns for office. While Avellaneda has served us proudly as a member of the Chelsea City council, Monahan was making his first run for elected office and the esteemed graduate of Harvard University conducted an impressive campaign.
We certainly hope that Chelsea residents will continue to participate in the electoral process as the two nominees, RoseLee Vincent and Todd Taylor, vie to succeed Kathi-Anne Reinstein as one of our representatives on Beacon Hill.
