Councilors meet on the campaign trail
HAVERHILL - City Councilors John Michitson and Colin LePage happened to be in the same place at the same time recently while on the campaign trail.
They were going door to door in the Hunking Middle School area when they arrived at the same home at almost the same time.
Michitson arrived first and was at the door of the home speaking with a man and woman, while LePage was coming up the walkway.
Michitson talked to the residents about economic development and his ideas for the city, while LePage spoke briefly about the city’s recycling program and plans to build a new Hunking School. LePage said that in his three campaigns for City Council, he’s never run into another candidate while going door to door.
