Marijuana Facilities Fail in Low Interest Methuen Election


The question of whether or not Methuen should allow marijuana growing facilities to locate within the city was rejected by voters 2,266 to 1,681.

Every single incumbent official was reelected. Only two races were challenged.

Mayor Perry ran unopposed, as did East District Councilors Steve Saba and Eunice Zeigler. Central District Councilors Joel Faretra and James McCarty also ran unopposed as did the entire six member school committee.

In the At Large (city wide) City Council race the three incumbent councilors; Jessica Finocchiaro, Nick DiZoglio, and DJ Beauregard were reelected. Challenger Joyce Campagnone, the only challenger, placed fourth.

In the West End District Council race both incumbents Allie Saffie and Mike Simard were reelected, defeating newcomer and veteran Mike Downs.
