The race is officially on! Friday, May 17 was the day Haverhill’s longest-serving Mayor James J. Fiorentini chose to formally announce his intention to run for a record ninth term in the city’s top office, pulling nomination papers with City Clerk Linda L. Koutoulas, WHAV confirms.

Fiorentini’s Friday decision to throw his hat into the ring comes two weeks after the City of Haverhill first allowed locals to pull papers for municipal office. Since May 1, Fiorentini is the fourth candidate to announce plans to run for mayor.

Haverhill police officer Daniel Trocki, Hector Montalvo, and Community Action employee Melanie Tamberino previously announced plans to run. Assuming all four candidates secure the necessary 50 signatures to appear on the ballot by July 1, a preliminary election takes place in September.
