Tuesday was Primary Day in Chelsea.
Contests were held in two districts – District 1 and District 7.
In District 1, Kathleen Cronin Bishop, topped the ticket besting Richard Pentano and Sylvia Ramirez.
Bishop, a cum laude Emmanuel College graduate who is employed at Home Depot in Chelsea, got 190 votes.
She is 22 and is the daughter of Chelsea city clerk Robert Bishop, himself a former ward councilor in Chelsea in the years before receivership.
Pentano is from a well known Chelsea family. He lives with his family on Exeter Street.
He came in second and will be facing Bishop in the November finale.
Pentano, a self-employed printer, is 58.
He received 141 votes.
Syvia Ramirez, a Reynolds Avenue resident, also ran.
She received 34 votes and was eliminated.
In Distric 7 balloting, a Washington Avenue attorney Anthony Pellegrino topped the ticket with 53 votes.
Incumbent Deborah Washington came in second with 35 votes. Washington is from a longtime Chelsea family and lives on Broadway.
Running third was Clifford Cunningham.
The Lawrence Street resident polled 17 votes and was eliminated.
Both primaries in the two districts drew a total of 476 voters – a small turnout by any stretch of the imagination.
