Bob Bolton, Dean Fachon, and Anthony Giarrusso, all of East Greenwich, are each looking to earn the GOP spot on the general election ballot Nov. 6.
It's been 20 years since the Dist. 30 state representative seat was up for grabs. In 1992, Rep. Bob Watson (R) won the seat and has held it ever since. His announcement he wouldn't run for re-election this year has prompted five people to get into the race, three of them Republicans who will face off in the primary Tuesday, Sept. 11. Dean Fachon, Anthony Giarrusso, and Bob Bolton are the three Republicans. None has held elected office before and Fachon and Giarrusso are first-time candidates as well. Fachon is the endorsed candidate. In a debate last month (sponsored by EG Patch and the town GOP), the candidates voiced their reasons for running. For Anthony Giarrusso, he said he's running because, as a business owner, he wants to help …

In addition, one Democrat and one independent filed to run for the seat long held by the retiring Bob Watson.
Three Republicans – two newcomers and one former candidate – have filed to run for the House Dist. 30 seat being relinquished by Bob Watson, which sets up the need for a primary in that race on Sept. 11. Emil (Dean) Fachon, Antonio (Anthony) Giarrusso, and Bob Bolton all submitted papers this week to run for District 30. “I’m very involved in the grassroots Tea Party movement,” Fachon said, who filed Wednesday. This is his first run for office. He is concerned about rising taxes and has written op/ed pieces for Providence Business News and the Warwick Beacon. Fachon, 54, grew up in East Greenwich and lives on Pricewood Drive. He is a technical writer, is married and has two children. “This is the seat I was always interested in,” he said…

He plans to run as a Republican, which would force a primary if Bob Watson decides to run for re-election.
Insurance agent Bob Bolton said Wednesday he plans to run as a Republican for the House District 30 seat now held by fellow Republican Bob Watson, which will prompt a primary if Watson seeks re-election. “I think we need strong, viable Republican representation at the State House,” said Bolton. “I’m the sort of person who can work with both sides of the aisle, not just be an island by myself, for the betterment of the Town of East Greenwich and the State of Rhode Island.” Bolton, who has served on the Zoning Board for eight years, ran for the same seat two years ago, as an independent. Before that, he ran as a Republican in a primary against Watson and lost. He was a registered Democrat at one time. He doesn’t see a conflict in running …
