Dear Friends,
I have been leading the way for your family's future. I have uniquely embarked on addressing one of the world's most important issues in the 21st century – jobs and economic development, the lifeline of every community. I am helping to lay the groundwork now to attract and retain businesses over the next 5-10 years. Attracting and retaining companies is essential to provide good jobs at every level and to expand the commercial tax base for additional recurring revenue needed to provide essential City services.
I am fighting for the following outcomes for Haverhill:
  • A thriving business community
  • Schools that cultivate students for successful careers and fulfilling lives
  • Stable Property Taxes and Fees (e.g. water, sewer)
  • Safe and vibrant neighborhoods
  • Improved City Property Infrastructure Maintenance
I have been honored to serve the citizens of Haverhill on the City Council for
12 years. I once again ask for your vote in the upcoming election.
John Michitson
NEW FOR 2013
