Slattery to Kick Campaign Off in Danvers This Sunday
A meet and greet will be held in Danvers on March 18 from 2-4 p.m. at the home of John Archer, who lives at 10 North St.
Peabody's John Slattery, one of three Democratic candidates vying for the 2nd Essex District seat in the state Senate, will be kicking off his campaign this Sunday in Danvers.
Salem city councilor Joan Lovely got her campaign underway with supporters at the Hawthorne Hotel in Salem last Sunday and Governor's Councilor Mary-Ellen Manning (also a Peabody resident) was the first out of the gate, holding a campaign event at the Elks Club in Peabody in January.
All three are practicing attorneys and hoping to fill the shoes of retiring Senator and Peabody native Fred Berry.
A one-term Peabody city councilor, Slattery, 53, went on to represent Peabody in the state legislature from 1995-2003, but has not run for office in several years after losing a bid for mayor against Michael Bonfanti in 2005. Slattery also ran for lieutenant governor in 2002.
