PUTNEY — Democratic voters from Putney, Westminster and Dummerston chose Rep. Michael Mrowicki, D-Putney and newcomer Michelle Bos-Lun of Westminster to run in the General Election in November in a five-person field during Tuesday's Primary election for the Windham-4 District.
Mrowicki posted an easy win and topped the field with 1,633 votes to Bos-Lun's second-place finish of 1,515, according to results posted by the Vermont Secretary of State.
Finishing far behind were Matt Ingram of Putney, David Ramos of Westminster and Robert DePino, also of Westminster.
Ingram had 197 votes, Ramos 135 votes and DePino 71 votes..
The Democrats were vying to fill the spot left by Rep. Nader Hashim, D-Dummerston, a former Vermont State Police trooper, who decided not to seek a second term. Hashim, who was forced to resign from the state police because of his State House duties, said that financial considerations were behind his decision. He is now reading for the law at a Brattleboro law firm.
Bos-Lun hosted a Zoom celebration party Tuesday evening with family members and childhood friends cheering her on.
Mrowicki was the top vote getter in his hometown of Putney and Dummerston, while Bos-Lun came in first in Westminster where she garnered 537 votes to Mrowicki's 510 votes.
Bos-Lun thanked her crew of volunteers during the Zoom meeting, which was chaired by her son Aaron Bos-Lun. She said that her campaign had between 40 to 50 volunteers, and she thanks Rights & Democracy for its help with her campaign.
