Newcomer wins primary in 14th.

COLUMN: IN OUR OPINION; EDITORIAL FOOTNOTE

Political newcomer James O'Day was the somewhat surprising winner of a four-person race for the Democratic nomination for state representative in the 14th Worcester District on Tuesday. We say "somewhat surprising" because Mr. O'Day comes from West Boylston where only 879 votes were cast out of a total of 3,421, and all the other candidates were from Worcester. But his deep roots in the city - he grew up in Greendale - and strong backing by several unions and the grass-roots Neighbor to Neighbor group won him 41 percent of the vote. Once again, voter turnout was dismal in the city: only 13.62 percent. Mr. O'Day faces Joseph Cariglia of Worcester in the April 17 general election.
