First Essex State Senate Shaun Toohey yesterday received the endorsement of Republican gubernatorial nominee Charles D. “Charlie” Baker Jr.
The endorsement comes a week before Toohey, a Republican, faces off against incumbent Democratic Senator Kathleen O’Connor-Ives at the polls.
“There is a real choice to be made in the race for state senate. I am asking you to vote for Shaun Toohey. Shaun and I understand the issues our border communities face and we will work together to solve the economic challenges unique to the First Essex district.” Baker said.
Toohey is president of the Haverhill School Committee and a school committee member at Whittier Regional Vocational Technical High School. He is a partner at Seaman and Toohey Insurance Agency and a regional vice president at MEP LLC.
