LAWRENCE (CBS/AP) — Lawrence Mayor Dan Rivera has won a rematch with the city’s former mayor, William Lantigua.
The rivalry between the two political figures has often been bitter in the Merrimack Valley city. Rivera ousted Lantigua from office by just 81 votes four years ago.
“There’s a group of people in another room right now, who are feeling sad because they lost, but they are Lantiguas. We’re going to see them in the supermarket and we’re going to go ‘hey guys'”, said Rivera in his acceptance speech. “Tomorrow, we are one Lawrence again.”
