Current Fall River School Committee member Paul Coogan has easily beat his competition to become Fall River’s mayor in 2020.
The unofficial results:
Jasiel Correia II 1002
It is expected that a good number of the write-in votes will go to Cathy Ann Viveiros.
Viveiros, who is the current City Administrator of Fall River, launched a write-in campaign for mayor on October 16th, two days after Jasiel Correia II suspended his campaign and took a leave of absence as mayor of Fall River due to the charges he is facing and the distraction they were bringing to the city.
Coogan was the top vote getter in the preliminary election in September with 8,273 votes (62.3%). Correia received 2,777 votes (20.9%).
Coogan will take office at the sixth floor in January.
