Congratulations to South Boston State Senator Jack Hart, who was named Assistant Majority Leader in the Massachusetts Senate by State Senate President Therese Murray earlier this month.
Senator Hart replaces former Senator Stephen Tolman from Brighton, who is now president of the AFL-CIO in Massachusetts.
"I am honored to be afforded this opportunity by Senate President Murray, a woman and a leader whom I greatly admire," Hart said. "In this position, I hope to work with the leadership and the members to continue to do good things for the people of the Commonwealth."
A lifelong resident of South Boston, Senator Hart presides over the annual St. Patrick's Day breakfast in Boston each year that precedes the St. Patrick's Day Parade.
Hart has also been a strong advocate for cultural tourism and is an active member of the T5 Committee, an initiative by the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority to make Boston one of the top five convention destinations in the United States.
