John Kerry on Therese Murray's election as President of the Massachusetts Senate
Senator John Kerry today released the following statement on Senator Therese Murray's election as President of the Massachusetts Senate.
"Another barrier has broken in Massachusetts. The first woman to lead either chamber of the legislature, Terry Murray is going to make an enormous impact and set an important example. As a woman and a voice from the South Shore, Terry will bring a fresh perspective to the State Senate presidency.
"She has long been an advocate for human service programs, has fought for increased funding for our state's schools, accessible and affordable health care, and improved public safety. I look forward to working with her and wish her the very best of luck in her new position."
