City Councilor Thomas J. Sullivan.
City Councilor Thomas J. Sullivan took the top spot on the Haverhill City Council ballot during a drawing Thursday afternoon at the City Clerk’s office. Maura Ryan-Ciardiello drew the top spot on the School Committee ballot.
There are 16 candidates for nine City Council seats and five for three School Committee positions. There is no preliminary election this year because too few candidates chose to seek elected office. The final city election is Tuesday, Nov. 7—the same day voters will choose a state representative in a special election.
“It’s a great sign, and with a lot of hard work in the fall, I hope to place number one then as well,” Sullivan told WHAV.
In January, city councilors will be paid $15,000 annually, while the council president will receive $18,000, as a result of a vote last month.

- Councilor Colin F. LePage
