State rep candidates spar over local aid claims


This is the first controversy to arise in the state representative race.

A late write-in campaign during the state primary put Bennett’s name on the ballot. A selectman since 2007, Bennett is also a trustee at Essex Agricultural and Technical High School and works as a self-employed real estate broker.

Speliotis is one of the longest-serving legislators on Beacon Hill, having also served a stint in the House of Representatives from 1979 to 1986. He is a former Danvers town moderator.
