Fall River Mayor Will Flanagan hugs supporters after conceding defeat in a recall election, Tuesday, Dec. 16, 2014.Fall River Mayor Will Flanagan hugs supporters after conceding defeat in a recall election, Tuesday, Dec. 16, 2014.

Voters in Fall River recalled Mayor Will Flanagan in a special election Tuesday and replaced him with Bristol County District Attorney Sam Sutter.

Flanagan conceded defeat within an hour of the polls closing at 8 p.m. The incumbent had two chances in the special election. One was to avoid recall. The second was being selected again to be mayor.

Flanagan’s name was listed first on a slate of eight candidates.

It was not certain Tuesday night when the handover would take place.

The Herald News reported that Sutter would take office when the election is certified. The governor would appoint Sutter’s replacement, who would serve until the next election.

Unofficial results from the city Board of Elections showed 69 percent of voters casting ballots in favor of the recall.

With all of the precincts reporting, Sutter won the office with about 37 percent of the vote. Flanagan was second with 27 percent, followed by Shawn Cadime with 19 percent.

“This is a wonderful moment for me, and let’s hope it turns out to be a wonderful moment for the city,” Sutter said.

Asked Tuesday night if he had any regrets, Flanagan told NBC 10, “Of course, but I’m proud of our administration.”

Critics of Flanagan sought his recall, claiming fiscal mismanagement, fire department layoffs and a public outcry over the city’s pay-as-you-throw trash program.

Flanagan won his third term as mayor in November 2013 with 69 percent of the vote, the same percentage that voted for his recall Tuesday.

Sutter has run unsuccessfully for Congress and considered a run for attorney general. His office is prosecuting a 2013 case in which Aaron Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder.
