Anthony Giarrusso beat Emil Fachon and Bob Bolton.
Anthony Giarrusso won the Republican primary for the state House Dist. 30 seat with 353 votes Tuesday, Sept. 11. He will face Democrat Mark Schwager and independent Kevin McDonough in the general election Nov. 6. The race featured three candidates. In addition to Giarrusso, Emil Fachon got 232 votes, and Bob Bolton got 178. Democrat Schwager got 452 votes.

Watson announced his retirement in June. "It's a great honor for me," said Giarrusso Tuesday night. Going into the general election, Giarrusso said, "we have a very strong network."

Bob Bolton, Dean Fachon, and Anthony Giarrusso discuss the EDC, gay marriage, and the role of the minority.
The three Republican candidates for state House District 30 met Thursday for a debate at the Varnum Armory before an estimated 100 people.

The EG Republican Town Committee sponsored the debate, along with East …
