On the evening of November 2, 2017, residents of Haverhill were invited to a debate between Shaun Toohey (R) and Andy Vargas (D), candidates for the 3rd Essex State Representative post vacated by Brian Dempsey. The debate concerned various issues that impact Haverhill and the State.
This Candidates Debate was sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Greater Haverhill. It was held in HCTV’s new studio on Merrimack Street. The event was free and open to the public and was well-attended.

LWV-GH is, like its namesake, a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy. Since 1920, the League of Women Voters has fought to improve our systems of government and impact public policies. LWVGH is a local grassroots offshoot of LWV; its strength and importance come from its unique decentralized structure that works in harmony with our state and national organizations.
