EVERETT – Everett residents voted Mayor Carlo DeMaria, Jr. into his third term by a 2-1 margin, trouncing his opponent Ward 1 Councilor Peter Napolitano, according to unofficial results released by the Everett City Clerk’s office on Tuesday evening.
“I’m humbled and excited with the show of support, ” DeMaria said in a statement. “This election shows that the people of Everett are putting their faith in us to move this city forward, and I promise to exceed that expectation in this next term.”
DeMaria won overwhelmingly with 4,477 (69%) of the vote.
DeMaria’s goal over his four-year tenure has been consistent: the city of Everett needs to be revitalized. He has developed a major base of support among residents, attempting to continue providing high-quality services in demand by residents despite a roller coaster economic climate since his first inauguration.
“I’ve said it again and again. Everett’s a great place for families, it’s a great place to do business, and it’s a great place to call home,” DeMaria said in a recent interview with NoBo Magazine.
The Mayor is a lifelong resident of Everett, where he lives with his wife and three children. A graduate of Everett High School and Northeastern University, DeMaria entered politics in 1994 as a city councilor and went on to serve as the city’s Alderman-at-Large. DeMaria is also a successful entrepreneur who owns and operates four Honeydew Donuts franchises.
