State Rep. Richard Ross (R) just became the newest Massachusetts State Senator with 62% if the vote in a special election to fill the seat Scott Brown once held. Ross will represent the Norfolk County 9th district. His opponent was Peter Smulowitz (D).
"Tonight marks the beginning a new journey for me. I have proudly served half of this state Senate district as a Representative for the past six years and I look forward to the opportunity of serving the towns in the north for the first time. It is a true honor to be finishing the term of U.S. Senate Scott Brown in the state Senate and I am energized and humbled by the support I received today.
My record in the Legislature of never voting for a tax increase truly resonated with families and businesses of the district, and I look forward to continuing to fight for the taxpayers who themselves are working so hard every day.“ -Richard Ross
