Diana DiZoglio (D-Methuen) has officially been sworn in as the new State Senator for the 1st Essex District.
DiZoglio is among the five newly elected members of the State Senate and the only freshman senator to move from the House of Representatives, where she served three terms representing residents in Methuen, North Andover, Haverhill and Lawrence in the 14th Essex District.
She succeeds Kathleen O’Connor Ives, D-Newburyport, who served the 1st Essex District for three terms as State Senator.
In addition to Haverhill, Methuen, Newburyport and four wards in North Andover, DiZoglio will represent the towns of Amesbury, Merrimac and Salisbury in the 1st Essex.
Following her swearing in, the Merrimack Valley’s newest state senator said she is ready to hit the ground running on the issues of critical importance for her constituents.
“I’m so humbled to have the opportunity to continue serving the residents of the Merrimack Valley. I can’t wait to get straight to work for the people in our community,” said DiZoglio. “Thank you to everyone who put their faith in me to represent you on Beacon Hill. I will work hard to take our collective work to the next level as your state senator.”
