Monagle displayed strength at the polls across Everett, winning in all precincts and recording 63 percent of the vote to 26 percent for Marchese.

McGonagle talked about the successful campaign and the hard-fought election in an interview Tuesday night.

“I’m just proud of all the people that worked for me,” said McGonagle. “It’s a hard-fought, long campaign, and I’m very grateful to the voters of Everett. I understand that the greatest privilege you can give Joe McGonagle is your vote. The residents came out to vote, and I think the voters responded that I’m doing a good job.”

McGonagle’s impressive victory matched the Democratic Party’s success in the election for the state’s constitutional offices, with Attorney General Maura Healey getting elected governor of Massachusetts.

State Rep. candidate Judith García defeated candidate Todd Taylor for the 11th Suffolk District State Reprentative seat.

State Sen. Sal DiDomenico was re-elected without opposition in Tuesday’s election.
