Benn challenges Atkins for state representative

State Representative Cory Atkins, a Concord Democrat who believes the state is doing a lot of things right, is seeking a seventh term in a race against Republican challenger Michael J. Benn, who says the one-party control on Beacon Hill has government “out of balance.”

Atkins, 65, and Benn, 47, are vying to represent the 14th Middlesex District, which covers all of Concord and Carlisle, and parts of Acton and Chelmsford.
