With one month to go until the November election to name the new Massachusetts state representatives, local hopeful Christina Eckert is putting down roots in the Merrimack Valley. The Boxford resident plans to open a Georgetown campaign office this week, her team tells WHAV.

The office, Eckert’s hub for volunteers and campaign outreach, is located at 1 East Main St.

Over the weekend, Eckert was among the democrats who gathered at downtown Haverhill’s Barking Dog Ale House for a “unity rally” two weeks after the primary.

As a first-time candidate, Eckhert said she’s learned quite a bit during door-to-door canvass sessions.

“My campaign has knocked on 8,000 doors. I was daunted when I first learned you had to go door-to-door, and I’ve learned that it’s not about telling people about my campaign,” reasoned Eckhert. “It’s about finding out about them: Where they live, what’s important to them, and we have those conversations and I take notes. It makes me more energized than ever to go out and fight for them.”

If elected, Eckert would represent cities and towns including parts of Haverhill and Boxford, Georgetown, Groveland, Merrimac, Newbury and Byfield and West Newbury. She faces opposition from republican incumbent Lenny Mirra.
