Devers to succeed Lantigua at statehouse

LAWRENCE — Marcos Devers won the special election for state representative by a landslide tonight capturing 88 percent of the vote.

This is Devers' third try for the state representative seat previously held by William Lantigua, who is now the mayor of Lawrence.

"I will be faithful to you, working from the statehouse," Devers told some 60 cheering supporters who gathered at City Hall last night.

Devers took 1,369 votes while his challenger Rafael Gadea garnered 171. Just 81/2 percent of the registered voters on the north side of the city submitted ballots yesterday.
