A lifelong Haverhill resident, Nick Golden has always been passionate about the place we call home. Nick is running for City Council to add new energy and experience to our shared work of making Haverhill a wonderful place to work and live, to modernize City Hall and make it more transparent, and to lead bold action to provide the quality education and effective public safety everyone in Haverhill deserves.
As a student at St. Joseph’s School of All Saints Parish in Haverhill, and Central Catholic High School in Lawrence, Nick studied the Catholic traditions of service to others as a vocation.
And as a college student at Tufts University, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in International Relations with a concentration in U.S. Foreign Policy, Nick learned the value of considering all sides of an issue and how to bring people together in his course of study of diplomacy and as managing editor of the daily student newspaper.
As a reporter at the Eagle Tribune after college, Nick learned first hand the necessity of transparency to prevent waste and corruption by holding government accountable, covering school districts and boards of selectmen across southern New Hampshire.
And in his current work as a legislative staffer at the Massachusetts State House, Nick works each and every day helping constituents navigate complicated bureaucracies and assisting in getting results for the communities with which he works, while tackling big picture issues as a research staffer such as education funding, lead in school drinking water, college campus sexual violence, and voting access.
Now, as a candidate for city council, Nick will bring all those experiences to bear to be an accountable, accessible, and exceptional member of local government.
