Former Methuen City Council Chair Eunice D. Zeigler says she has turned in more than 1,000 certified signatures to become the first candidate to qualify for the ballot to be the 5th District’s next Governor’s Councilor.

Zeigler is seeking the seat following five-term Governor’s Councilor Eileen R. Duff’s decision to run instead for Essex County Register of Deeds.

“There are 36 cities and towns in this district and I have been to every single one of them because I know you cannot represent people without listening to them first. I’m excited to be on the ballot and look forward to talking more about the importance of the Governor’s Council in Massachusetts and what I want to bring to the table,” Zeigler said in a statement.

Zeigler served as a member of the Methuen City Council from 2018 to 2023. She has held roles with the City of Haverhill, Lowell Housing Authority and YWCA Northeastern Massachusetts. She now serves as vice president of strategic planning and administration at Emmaus in Haverhill.

The primary election is Sept. 3.
