Day Two of Q & A With the Candidates for State Rep

To see the candidates' answers, swipe left on the photo above.


On September 6, 2022, six Democrats will face off in the primary for the 8th Essex District State Representative seat. There are no Republicans or third-party candidates running. Barring a strong write-in candidate in November, the winner of the primary among the Democrats will be the new state representative for our district. 


Marblehead Beacon sent each of the six candidates a questionnaire. Yesterday we published the first in a series of substantive questions, along with the responses from each candidate. Today we continue our coverage with some lighter, more personal questions and answers. 


Editor’s Note: After several emails and two phone calls, the only response we received from Tristan Smith's campaign was from a spokesperson who said the candidate might be too busy to complete the questionnaire. He was the only one of the six candidates who did not submit answers.

Editors's Note: In an earlier version we had listed Terri Tauro's favorite location and politician incorrectly.
