The Second Essex District is blessed to have seven beautiful towns — all of whom possess a unique natural beauty. As your State Representative, Lenny Mirra has worked tirelessly to make sure that we have clean air, clean water, and a responsible set of environmental standards. Our beautiful rivers, forests, and coastline must always be protected. Since taking office, Lenny has accomplished the following:

  • Worked with the legislature and community groups to secure funding for open space preservation
  • Secured $200,000 in grants to trap invasive green crabs and repair damage to the Great Marsh and our clam flats
  • Worked to stop the dumping of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from being dumped in the Merrimack River
  • Passed a bill to modernize community communications in times where there is Combined Sewage Overflow in the Merrimack River
  • Supported Solar Net Metering Bill to increase the State’s net metering cap
  • Worked on the Energy Diversity Bill – diversifying the Commonwealth’s energy portfolio
