She said she is proud and honored to have worked with them in the campaign to elect former Rep. Donald C. Barcinas, the party’s candidate in the recently held special House election for Precinct 3. Barcinas finished second in the four-way race won by Republican candidate Marco T. Peter.

Hix said “the takeaway from this entire experience is that even though the results did not end in our favor it did show that a large percentage of voters cast their votes against the [Republican] party and exercised their right to vote for change.”

She added, “To be exact there was a total of 874 votes for change versus 863 and that in itself is something we will celebrate all day.”

Peter garnered 863 votes; Barcinas, 447; David C. Sablan, Independent, 233; and Mariano DLG Fajardo, Independent, 194.

Barcinas, for his part, said: “I don’t regret anything. Thank you for your support — let us remain positive and move forward.”

Hix said she and the Democratic Party will never stop fighting for a better future and a better Commonwealth.
