KENNEY VS. CRYANS IN ELECTION; TOWN TALLIES

by Gair on January 22, 2014

UPDATE NOON WEDNESDAY JANUARY 22, 2014: Here are the voting totals provided by the New Hampshire Secretary of State: (D) Cryans 1,767; (R) Aldrich 499; (R) Boothby 2,622; (R) Kenney 3,622.

Conway Town Clerk Rhoda Quint says she expected a low turnout of voters Tuesday for the special primary to fill the late Ray Burton’s executive council seat for District One.

And there was a low turnout for the single issue primary, with just 227 voters – out of a total of just more than 6,600 registered in Conway – casting their votes at the community center in Center Conway.

The Associated Press reports with about 60 percent of precincts reporting, unofficial results show Republican candidate and former New Hampshire state senator Joseph Kenney defeated his two party rivals – Laconia businessman Christopher Boothby and retired congressional aide Mark Aldrich, who both conceded to Kenney Tuesday night.

The sole Democratic candidate – Michael J. Cryans of Hanover – who currently serves as the Grafton County Commissioner – released a statement saying he won the Democratic nomination.

So Cryans will face Kenney in the March 11, 2014 general election.
