Dykema Defeats Lamb

by Bobby Blair
November 6, 2012

Rep. Carolyn Dykema was returned to Beacon Hill by a large margin.

Political supporters of Rep. Carolyn Dykema gathered Tuesday night at Pinecrest Golf Club to await election results from neighboring towns. With only one precinct in Hopkinton not reporting due to a breakdown in voting machines, it was apparent that Carolyn Dykema was the hands down favorite from figures already tallied and easily defeated Republican opponent Marty Lamb.

Dykema told supporters it's your town, your community and I will continue to support strong schools, and realistic expectations. It couldn't happen without you.

With only one precinct to be counted Dykema led Lamb 61% to 39%. In 2010 Dykema bested local resident Jonathan Loya gaining 71% of the vote.

Was this election ever in doubt?? NO!! The lowlight of the campaign, of course, was the ethics complaint filed over donations of raffle prizes for the senior picnic. That sealed the victory.

Thank you to Marty Lamb for running for State Rep, putting forth substantive legislative ideas, and being the choice for State Representative for a respectable ~40% of voters.
