“She will be a great senator at the state level.”
Toohey, the Republican nominee, is in his ninth year on the
Haverhill School Committee and serves on the Whittier Regional
Vocational School Committee; Magliocchetti is a
first-term Haverhill School Committee member; and Kelcourse 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.
