Every 10 Years, in conjunction with the US Census, the various Congressional, State Senate, and State Representative Districts of Massachusetts change. The effects of these changes for North Andover are listed here.
Representative in Congress: No Change, all of North Andover remains within the 6th Congressional district. Republican candidate Bob May is challenging incumbent Congressman Seth Moulton for this seat.
State Senate: North Andover remains divided among two State Senate Seats, however, the precincts represented by each have changed.
Precincts 7 & 8 remain in the First Essex and Middlesex district, currently represented by Republican Senator Bruce Tarr, who is running unopposed.
Precincts 5&6, which were formerly part of the First Essex and Middlesex District, as well as Precincts 1 through 4 that were formerly part of the First Essex District, are now part of the Second Essex and Middlesex District. Republican, and former Navy SEAL Sal DeFranco is challenging incumbent Democrat Barry Feingold who currently represents that district.
State Representative: Here again North Andover is divided between two State Rep. Districts, the 14th and 18th Essex districts. The changes are that Precinct 6 is now in the 14th Essex, where it was formerly part of the 18th Essex.
In the 14th Essex incumbent Christina Minicucci, whose family owns MinCo Construction, has chosen not to run. She is backing political newcomer, and divorce attorney, Adrianne Ramos. She is being challenged by Republican Joe Finn, who has worked tirelessly to stop the overdevelopment of our town.
In the 18th Essex Republican Jeff Dufour is challenging incumbent Democrat Tram Nguyen.
