By Thomas Grillo Glenn Davis, an “on call” firefighter, will be Lynnfield’s next chief starting in January. The 58-year-old Lynnfield resident, whose day job has been working in the oncology unit of a healthcare company, came up through the ranks of the fire department as lieutenant, captain, and deputy chief over nearly three decades of service. Last summer, the Board of Selectmen voted unanimously not to renew Chief Mark Tetreault’s $115,000 five-year contract, which ends in December.

Most of them won, giving control of the House to Democrats. Moulton, who was reelected handily to his third term and insists he is not running for president in two years, backed 19 winners (against 16 losses). “The American people want a new generation of leadership in Washington within the Democratic party and that’s exactly what you see in these candidates,” Moulton told the Weekly News. “It’s a group of people who are not career politicians, who are unabashed about going against the establishment, and are very clear they will put the country first over politics. That’s the kind of campaigns they ran, the type of leaders they are, and those are the folks who won.” Democrats appear poised to pick up nearly 40 House seats in the 2018 midterm elections, the most since the Watergate era of the 1970s.
