Boston – Senator Richard Ross was recently recognized by Beacon Hill Roll Call for his 100% voting attendance record in the Massachusetts Senate in 2016. This marks the fifth year in a row Senator Ross has received a perfect attendance record.
“I am honored to once again have served and represented the people of the Norfolk, Bristol, and Middlesex District,” said Senator Ross. “While it is important to speak and listen to the request of my constituents, it is even more important to be their voice on Beacon Hill. I hope to continue serving them in 2017.”
In 2016 the Senate held 469 roll call votes – more than double held in 2015. The near 500 votes pertained to legislation including topics such as the FY17 budget, pay equity, economic development, energy diversity and MBTA fare increases. Throughout the remainder of the year the Senate is continuing to hold informal sessions and will return to formal sessions in January of 2016.
Senator Ross is running for reelection this November for his fourth term in the Senate.
