ANDOVER — A U.S. Army veteran will challenge incumbent state Rep. James Lyons in the 2016 election.

Oscar Camargo said he will formally announce his run on Wednesday, Nov. 11, in front of Andover’s Old Town Hall.

In a press release, Camargo described himself as socially progressive and fiscally conservative, which fits with the profile of the 18th Essex District. A graduate of Northeastern University and the Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy at Tufts University, Camargo cited his involvement in community organizations such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Knights of Columbus, and Ironstone Farm.

While living in North Andover in 2014, he was one of two Democratic primary challengers to incumbent Rep. Diana DiZoglio.

Lyons has held the seat, which represents parts of Andover, Boxford, North Andover and Tewksbury, since 2011.
