  • About Colin

    The Beginning

    In 1997, Colin LePage moved to Haverhill with his family and immediately became involved in the community. In 2009 he was elected to Haverhill's City Council and continues to be a strong advocate for both the residents and businesses of the City.

  • City Issues

    Less Talk ... More Action

    Fiscal Responsibility

    Over the past few years, Colin has identified over $1.2 million dollars in unaccounted funds that have been better utilized to lower your tax bills and increase funding for public safety and educational purposes.

    Public Safety

    During his time on the City Council, Colin has advocated for more police officers. This year he was one of the 5 Councillors who did not approve the budget until the Mayor agreed to an additional 5 officers.

    Curbside Recycling

    Colin advocated for and assisted in the implementation of the curbside single-stream recycling program which has resulted in savings for the City of more than $1.3 million dollars in waste disposal costs.

    Education

    Over the past 2 years, Colin was able to identify unaccounted for funds in the city budget and led the charge to reinstate the health program with the appointment of 3 new health teachers for our middle schools.

    Opioid Crisis

    Colin continues to advocate for a comprehensive health education program for our youth and visits our middle schools to speak personally with students in the 8th grade about the perils of drugs.
