Montibello Thanks Supporters, Pledges to Create ‘Positive Impact’

Eva Montibello, the candidate for state representative who was disqualified this week from appearing on the ballot, said Thursday she doesn’t need “to be an elected official to make a difference.”

In a statement to supporters on social media, Montibello accepted blame for not filling in the community name on two of her signature sheets.

“It is with a heavy heart that I share that I did not make the ballot for state representative for the Third Essex District for Haverhill,” Montibello wrote. She thanked those who supported her, signed her nomination papers or offered to volunteer.

“The good thing. I don't have to be an elected official to make a difference (and neither do you)!” She wrote. “I have a few projects that I’ve been thinking about for years and will be taking on in our community to strive for creating positive impact in areas that need help.”

The disqualification means City Councilor Andy Vargas and School Committeeman Paul A. Magliocchetti will face off in the Democratic primary Tuesday, Oct. 10. The winner of the match will vie against School Committeeman Shaun P. Toohey, a Republican, during the final election Tuesday, Nov. 7.

  1. It’s like a Saturday night live skit with these people…..”Hey, remember that time I was running for office, and forgot to write in the community name?…..That was awesome…”

      • “…orangatan President…”
        Are you referring to President Trump…the guy who built a company that employs tens of thousands of people?
        Yea, that’s real stupid.

        • His father built everything.
          Every time he was left in charge of something -like his casinos they failed and all he ever did was screw the government and the little guy.

          He’s a pervert who likes to look at little girls when they are naked under the auspices of running a beauty pageant. He’s the personification of everything that is filthy in this country and everything that is wrong with the Republican Party. To say nothing of what a Soviet sympathizing turncoat he is.

          That’s your president Jack a pig and orangutan and Soviet lover. Ronald Reagan must be spinning in his grave.

    • Stupidity doesn’t discriminate against any political party.

      Have you ever heard W., or the giant , man -baby , orangutan -looking president speak?

      Besides this less- than- diligent politician would be is a Trumpite.
