Havern Goes To The Dark Side

The rumors turned out to be true: state senator Robert Havern is resigning to become a lobbyist with ML Strategies.

State House News Service has reps Jim Marzilli and Robert [Correction: Charles] Murphy already throwing their hats into the ring for the special election to replace Havern, whose district includes Arlington, Burlington, and Billerica.

With the departures earlier this year of senators Travaglini and Barrios, this is a major turnover of representation for eastern Mass., in a senate not generally known for heavy rotation.

Update: It was inevitable that I would screw up someone's name after writing the Eldridge/Resor post. I don't even have the excuse of mistaking him for one of the other Murphys in the state house of representatives, who are also not named Robert.
