Silva, Andrade in state rep runoff in Nashua
Nearly 500 ballots were cast in Tuesday’s special primary election, where the only item on the ballot was the House seat left vacant when Roland LaPlante resigned in February because of health issues.
“I believe that I have a record I can run on, and I think this is a good opportunity to serve my city in Concord,” he said. “I think I will be a good representative because I already know how government works in Nashua.”
He has lived in Nashua since 1976, and currently serves on the city’s Business and Industrial Development Authority. Andrade is also the owner and CEO of Top Tier Connections Inc. in Nashua, an international business development company.
Prior to the results being announced Tuesday night, Mangipudi said she was hopeful to win the primary election and take on Silva on Nov. 5.
Democracy is not a spectator sport, according to Mangipudi, who said democracy starts with voting.
According to Gene Anderson, Ward 8 moderator, voter turnout was low on Tuesday, but that was expected for a special election.
Silva and Andrade will face off in the general election, which will be held the same day at the city’s municipal election on Nov. 5.
