Mirra captures 2nd Essex House seat

WEST NEWBURY — Republican Lenny Mirra will succeed Rep. Harriett Stanley, capturing the 2nd Essex District House seat over Democrat Barry Fogel.

Mirra topped Fogel 12,626 to 11,507 votes. Both men are West Newbury residents.

The district includes West Newbury, Newbury, Merrimac, Georgetown, Groveland and parts of Haverhill and Boxford.

Mirra entered the general election season riding a wave of momentum after he emerged from a hard-fought, three-way primary race for the Republican nomination, beating out Robert Cronin of Boxford and Gary Fowler of Georgetown.

But Fogel, who ran unopposed for the Democratic nomination, built his own momentum by emphasizing his credentials as a lawyer who understands the legislative process while casting his opponent as unqualified for the job.

Stanley, D-West Newbury, has represented the 2nd Essex District for the past 18 years.
