O'Connor Ives wins state Senate seat

HAVERHILL --  Newburyport Democrat Kathleen O’Connor Ives has won the race for the First Essex Senate seat.

O'Connor Ives, who is in her third-term Newburyport city councilor, held her victory party at DiBurros function hall in Haverhill. 

Poll results showed her with commanding wins in Methuen, Newburyport, North Andover, and Haverhill.

Also running for the seat were Shaun Toohey, the Republican nominee, who is in his ninth year on the Haverhill School Committee and serves on the Whittier Regional Vocational School Committee; Paul Magliocchetti, an Independent, is a first-term Haverhill School Committee member; and James Kelcourse, also an Independent, is in his second term on the Amesbury City Council.

The district includes Newburyport, Amesbury, Salisbury, Merrimac, Haverhill, Methuen, and about half of North Andover.

This is the first open race for the seat in a decade. The former senator, Methuen Democrat Steve Baddour, resigned earlier this year to take a job with a private law firm.
