EXETER—Dressed in a full-length, button-down, military-style jacket, former Exeter-West Greenwich School Committee member Paul McFadden stood outside of the Job Corps polling station in Exeter Tuesday night, bracing himself for the very realistic possibility that his bid to upset incumbents Mary Louise Walsh and Susan DeSack would fall short.
But, even as the temperature dropped and the 9 p.m. hour crept closer and closer, McFadden stood determined to fight until the bitter end and, in the cold fall wind, handed out campaign flyers until the very last voter entered the station.
It’s a good thing he did, too, because, it turns out, he needed every vote he could get.
