All three of Southborough’s state legislators are up for reelection this year, and all three will face challengers in their respective races.
Representing the 4th Middlesex district, which includes Southborough Precinct 1 along with Marlborough and Berlin, Democrat incumbent Danielle Gregoire will face off against Republican Steven L. Levy. Levy previously ran for a seat in the state senate in 2008. He lost to Democrat Jamie Eldridge, but he was a popular candidate in our town, taking 53% of the Southborough vote compared to Eldridge’s 47%.
Democrat Carolyn Dykema will seek reelection in the 8th Middlesex, which covers Southborough Precincts 2 and 3, along with Holliston, Hopkinton, Medway, and Westborough. She’ll be up against Jonathan Loya, a true political newcomer. Loya is a 19-year-old college student from Holliston who is running as an independent.
In the state senate, Democrat Jamie Eldridge will run for reelection in the Middlesex and Worcester district which includes all of Southborough, along with surrounding towns. Eldridge faces a challenge from Republican George M. Thompson who currently serves as a selectman in Westborough.
