Wanted: Magliocchetti signs downed by Hurricane Sandy

Paul Magliocchetti, Independent candidate for the First Essex Senate District, said he secured or removed most of his political signs before Hurricane Sandy hit last week.

He asks anyone who notices any of his signs down to contact his office at 978-373-3339 so he can have them collected or replaced.

Magliocchetti also announced that he will be visiting each of the communities in the district up until Election Day.

He will be knocking on doors and talking to constituents today in Methuen and North Andover and Monday in Haverhill.

Golnik: Let’s make a $100 deal

Is your inbox overloaded with campaign emails? Congressional hopeful Jon Golnik apparently feels your pain.

In — what else? — a campaign email sent Thursday, Golnik offered supporters an interesting proposition.

“It must be tough receiving all of these emails,” wrote the Carlisle Republican.

“Between all of the races, I’d say that I receive about 15 emails a day asking me for money. I will make a deal with you. If you donate $100 right now, we will take your e-mail address off of our e-mail list until election night. Deal?”

Golnik is on Tuesday’s ballot against U.S. Rep. Niki Tsongas, D-Lowell.

O’Connor Ives Iaunches video endorsements

Kathleen O’Connor Ives, senate candidate in the 1st Essex District, has launched a series of online videos featuring endorsements from residents and small business owners.

In one video, Haverhill resident Patricia Lachance recalls meeting O’Connor Ives as the candidate went door-to-door during the primary campaign.

“Nobody really listens anymore, and she truly listened to me,” Lachance said. “ “I appreciated that and I felt that I could always talk to her and get an honest response.”

O’Connor Ives said the videos are another way to introduce herself to people she hasn’t had the chance to meet in person.
