In the district’s Democratic primary, three candidates are fighting for the party nomination. They include, former three-term Methuen mayor William M. Manzi III, former three-term Newburyport city councilor at large Kathleen A. O’Connor Ives; and Timothy J. Coco, a business owner from Haverhill. The primary winners will vie in the final election with two unenrolled candidates, Amesbury City Councilor James M. Kelcourse and Haverhill School Committee member Paul A. Magliocchetti.
In the competitive race to represent Second Essex in the House, three Republicans, Bob Cronin of Boxford, Georgetown Selectman Gary C. Fowler, and Lenny Mirra of West Newbury, were contending in the primary. Harriett L. Stanley, a West Newbury Democrat, who held the post is retiring.
The winner of the GOP primary will match up against West Newbury Democrat Barry P. Fogel in November.
