Four New Dem Reps

In state party politics, people always talk about "developing the bench," which in large part means getting people to run for relatively small-potatoes local offices, from which they will eventually become candidates for higher office. Small offices like, say, school committee.

Guess what? It works.

Sean Garballey, at the tender age of 23, just jumped from Arlington School Committee to state representative. Kevin Aguiar, a Fall River School Committee member, will now represent the Bristol 7th. Former Melrose School Committee member Katherine Clark won Michael Festa's vacated seat.

The exception was Lori Ehrlich, a Swampscott CPA and environmental activist, who won in the 8th District. Cheater!

Congrats to them all (and good luck with re-election in eight months...)
