Two Haverhill candidates for mayor and two for City Council are among those planning campaign fundraising events.
Tonight at 5, Tomas Michel hosts his campaign kick-off at Maria’s Galleria Banquet Room located, 85 Essex St. Michel, a former U.S. Army Reserve service member, said his mission is to “promote equity in the community he serves one action at a time” and his vision is to “impact individuals, institutions and structures to exercise behaviors, policies and procedures compliant with the rule of law.”
“During the COVID-19 pandemic, I witnessed firsthand that there are insurmountable inequities taking place in our communities, and not enough citizens trying to help,” said Michel, who was born in the Dominican Republic, grew up in Puerto Rico and moved to Massachusetts during the summer of 2015.
Mayor James J. Fiorentini is having a fundraising breakfast tomorrow, Aug. 12, from 8-10 a.m., also at Maria’s Galleria Banquet Room. There is a suggested donation of $50, but all contributions will be accepted.
That night, mayoral contender and City Councilor Colin F. LePage kicks off his campaign for City Hall’s corner office with an event from 5:30 to 8 p.m., at The Peddlers Daughter, 45 Wingate St., Haverhill. LePage said he will share his ideas for “how to best move Haverhill forward.”
Haverhill City Council candidate Dee Jacobs O’Neil kicks off her campaign Thursday, Aug. 26, from 6-8 p.m., at Maria’s Family Restaurant, 81 Essex St.
