ANDOVER – Today, former Haverhill State Representative Frank Emilio endorsed Dan Koh in the Third District Congressional race. Emilio represented Haverhill’s Third Essex District for over a decade in the Massachusetts House of Representatives. Previously, he had served on the Haverhill City Council for six years.

“Now more than ever, we need people like Dan fighting for us in Congress,” said Emilio. “After meeting Dan, I knew that he was the right candidate for the job. Dan is focused on creating jobs and bringing economic development to Haverhill and cities across the Third District. He’s got great ideas, and he’ll bring a fresh perspective to D.C. I am proud to endorse Dan.”

“Frank has been a dedicated public servant for the people of Haverhill, and I am so humbled to have his support,” said Koh. “Like Frank, I believe we need to stand up to this President’s disastrous policies and fight for our progressive values. That’s what I did as Chief of Staff to Mayor Walsh, and that’s what I’ll do in Congress.”
