Democrats Hold Most Concord Statehouse Seats
New and old faces will return.
While Republicans are expected to hold onto control of the House and Senate at the Statehouse, Concord voted to return all Democrats, both new faces and old, to Representatives Hall.
In Ward 10, in East Concord, the area that is considered to be the most conservative part of the city, newcomer Christy Bartlett beat Ken Georgevits by about 360 votes, the closest state representative race in the city. Georgevits had received the endorsement of Concord Mayor Jim Bouley, a Democratic activist and lobbyist at the Statehouse.
Due to the lack of Ward 3 returns, results were incomplete for the West Concord floterial district and the state Senate race, which also includes Henniker, Hopkinton, and Warner.
In the Merrimack 28 floterial district, which features Wards 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 7, incumbents – state Rep. Mary Stuart Gile and state Rep. Chip Rice – were leading Republican Ron Noyes by solid margins.
