Democrat Latha Mangipudi is heading to Concord as Ward 8 State Rep, after beating Republican Peter Silva by 264 votes. The unofficial results posted at the poll showed Mangipudi with 862 votes, while Silva had 598.
"She ran a good race," Silva said, after shaking Mangipudi's hand.
"It's just a little unnerving to see this ward go more and more to the left. That's why I got involved in the first place"
